Exhibitions: Stochholm Furniture Fair 2010
I use a chair to hang my clothes on before going to bed. Eventually they build up and become a big pile, sometimes the pile is so big it tips the chair over. With the “Shaker” I want to unburden my chair and give the clothes it’s own space.
Many solutions are made for organizers, people that are good at keeping order, but what about people that are good at being untidy?
In this piece of furniture I have focused on behaviour. Piling clothes is something that some of us have a tendancy to do, and insted of to changing that behaviour I tried to create something useful and beautiful from the chaos of everyday life. I want to further encourage the act of throwing the clothes by making the clothing stand rock, reacting to the movement.
The clothes hanger is made solely in birch, and the joinery is inspired by the Shaker movement. A religious sect famous for their craftsmanship, simplicity and functionality.
