Coat Rack for Bonnie is not just a regular hanger; it’s an exploration of human habits through minimalist design. Created by Kiwi designer Annabelle Nichols, this handy piece of furniture will be a great addition to any home’s entrance hall. It comes with specially-designed compartments for keeping what anyone would need–or mustn’t forget–when going out: keys, a book or magazine, a coat and, of course, shoes.
The beautiful thing about Coat Rack for Bonnie isn’t just its clean lines or mix of materials, but the effortless way it can be used. Designed with natural human behavior in mind, the product focuses on four main parts, establishing a unity through a “hovering” steel sheet painted white.
This minimal metal structure, made by a CNC machine, has three defined levels. The top one features a hole with three loose wooden sticks that touch the floor and act as a coat hanger for a jacket, hat, or any piece of clothing. On the same level there’s a space for a small container that rests on a smaller hole, which is made from contrasting grey 3D-printed porcelain and holds small items like keys.
On a lower level there’s a longer surface for quickly dropping things, which features a space designed for magazines and books. And finally on the lowest level there is a natural wood shelf, which is perfect for leaving shoes as you enter the house.
Made from a beautiful combination of timeless materials and the latest technologies, Coat Rack for Bonnie finds a place for those important items that don’t–but should–have a special place in anyone’s home.
