Hanger Chair – Clothes Hanger And Chair in One
I don’t remember when was the last time I wrote something about design. Truthfully, I don’t really like design. However, I love design ideas that allow us to simplify our life. As I understand, what distinguishes designer from artist is the fact that designer creates not only nice, but also easy to use and practical things. Perfect example is “Hanger Chair” designed by Philippe Malouin, which I’m going to present you today.
As you might understood from the name, Philippe Malouin designed a nice looking chair, which is able to easily transform into clothes hanger in seconds. Italian-based designer emphasise the issue of space in today’s flats as the main inspiration source for “Hanger Chair” design. “Occasional furniture. The name should be self explanatory, but it is somewhat incorrect in most cases. These pieces tend to lie around the house, stacked in a corner, or in an unused room. When space is an issue, as is the case for most European city dwellers, an object such as a folding chair will clutter up the precious available space.”, says Philippe Malouin.
