This modern coat stand was custom—designed to fit within a small office.
The tops and notches of each upright can be used to support a wide variety
of hats, coats, and bags, while the 90° base fits compactly against a wall
or in a corner. Cherry wood with shellac finish and a dye glaze. 18″ W
× 15″ D × 60″ H.
The unusual design of the stand plays with the boundary between practical and sculptural objects.
The 90-degree base of the stand provides good stability, yet takes very little space placed against a wall or in a corner.
Soft curves and crisp details contrast in recurring themes throughout the stand.
Cutouts in the stand uprights translate the recurring theme of curves and crisp edges into negative space.
The top of each upright plus the matching notches provide a variety of convenient heights for hanging personal items.
Viewed in a raking light, the marks from hand-planing are evident, and surprisingly satisfying to the touch.
The profile of this through-tenon echos the crisp details and curves used throughout the stand.
The sincerity and stability of natural wood can complement any decor and fashion.
