The inspiration of this project comes from light-weight and stable construction of vigvam - a typical form of home of Indians. Also, vigvam form was widespread among other nomadic tribes. Since most of these tribes were hunters we also added antlers as a symbol of deers. Deer antlers is an old symbol of protection, welfare and qurding.

While creating Vigvam hanger we researched a number of technical features to make it practical in usage, such as maximal simplification of construction for final consumer, different types of veneering. Also, we analyzed the form of classical vigvam, its features of assembling, fixing and resistance.
One of our challenges was to create the folding hanger, which will be maximally simple in constructing and stable in the same time. We wanted to give the possibility to our client to maximally easily and independently assemble the hanger, so we designed the special way of fastening the hooks without extra tools or fittings. Metallic hooks, which fix the hanger stands, are also very simple in usage - just put them crosswise in the special holes.
