NS Queuer Magnetic hanger by Sun Xiuwen & Han Feng & Zhou Miao

Home > Winners > #56609


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
NS Queuer

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Magnetic hanger

INSPIRATION:
Hangers tend to be in a jumble when not in use. By taking advantage of magnetic force, NS Queuers could be able to keep themselves organized and neat when they are unoccupied. 'N' and 'S' stand for N-pole and S-pole of a magnet.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
NS Queuer is a clothes hanger with magnet embedded into its side surfaces. One of the surfaces is a convex platform and the other one is concave. Based on the two features above, when put back into a storage box, hangers could perfectly stack up orderly. Because of its rectangle section, NS hanger not only could be used alone to airing clothes, but also be combined to airing or support something else, such as shoes, even a bird nest, if you like.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The corresponding clothes airing bars top is designed as a thin iron plate instead of a fork. Users could raise the hanger quickly by attaching the top plate to the convex platform of the hanger. If the magnetic force is too small to support some heavy clothes, the groove in the center would offer a reliable supporting point to the airing bar. And users could put the hangers together to get a semi-closed container-like thing to airing things with odd shape.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in November 2016 in China.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Magnets embedded in the hanger.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Size: Width 400mm * Depth 10mm * Height 200mm

TAGS:
hanger, magnetic, clothes, shoes, airing

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
To verify the demand for the hanger like NS Queuer, we conducted a questionnaire survey and some interviews. The result showed that 62 percent of the respondents expressed their upset about the jumbled hangers, which means there is absolutely a prospective market. We designed serval schemas for this problem, and after painstaking selections, NS Queuer was the lucky one.

CHALLENGE:
It's not easy to control the weight of the hanger. At the beginning, to make hangers automatically aligned stably, we tried putting three magnets into the hanger. Thus, the weight of it became too big for a hanger. Inspired of the nested trollies in supermarket, we introduced a convex-concave structure to facilitate the alignment of the hangers. At this time the number of the magnets was reduced to one and the weight could be controlled to a reasonable range.
