Magical Coat Rack
Furniture is not just a mere component in the house, but also something staying with you for many years. That is why, I believe it's important to design simple and practical, yet humorous and playful furniture in your home to give you some comfort.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Phantom is a coat rack which consists of wood hooks, a wood basement and a clear acrylic stick. Because of its clear stick, it can create an illusion that your coats on hooks look like they are in the air in a dark room as though you see a phantom there. And this coat rack can be assembled without using screws or glues, thus it is easy to transport, assemble, disassemble, and dispose.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This coat rack consists of a long stick, 4 hook pieces, and a base. Everybody can build it easily by putting them together in the places without using screws or glues, and it is also easy to disassemble it.

In the beginning of the project, I did research about furniture with smart and beautiful structures. I was interested in those built with separate pieces without using screws or glues, and I liked that smart aesthetics.
The big challenge of this project was how I could bring humour in the entrance of houses. And, I came up with this coat rack idea that makes coats look floating in the air.
