The Belgian designer Benoît Deneufbourg launched his practice B.dnb designstudio in 2004.

His ’120° CoatStand’ was inspired by the classic coat rack that we find in the typical Dutch pub.

“Each pole of the coat stand is connected to the 2 others by smaller poles: 1 on the bottom and 1 on the top. The connections are both structural and usefull: they make the object more rigid and the little extension at each end gives the opportunity to hang an extra coat.”

Having visited the PP Møbler workshop once I am still impressed by the meticulousness and top quality craftsmanship of the Danish manufactory – a PP Møbler piece you will have forever. Recently they presented ‘Hang on’, a coat rack designed by Thomas Alken which consists of two parts: A rail in ash and hangers produced in all possible wood types depending on the current activity in the workshop. The two parts are easily assembled without the use of glue or tools, so it is possible to make your very own combination of wood types.

”I often got fascinated by the many wonderful peaces of waste wood that naturally appears in the creation of PP Møbler’s collection. There were pieces in ash, maple, oak, beech, walnut and cherry as well as various other wood types, which I didn’t immediately recognize. Each piece was like colour samples: Both individually beautiful, but also exciting in a mix of many different, where colour and grain look good in combinations. These pieces of waste wood fascinated me. They where far too good to burn but too small to be part of a chair or a table. So I went home wondering if I could figure out a good product that would make use of them.” says Thomas Alken.

At last year’s Orgatec the Dutch manufacturer Cascando presented the prototype of their new minimalist coat stand ‘Lean on’. Meanwhile the piece is in production. With ‘Lean on’ designer Peter van de Water offers a smart solution which doesn’t need to be mounted with hooks or screws and which gets its stability from the weight of the coats. Rubber stoppers avoid the sliding.
