Detroit-based industrial designer Jack Craig came out with a minimal wooden coat rack that doubles as a room divider. Crafted from light Ash and simply dubbed Coat rack room dividers, it gets “activated” when guests arrive and drape their clothes on its many modular units. As clothing populates the racks, the structure starts to disappear turning into a fabric landscape that also works as a space divider, which seems like the perfect prop for closet-deprived New Yorkers.
The minimal modular design allows users to reconfigure the rack in endless variations, adapting to any room size or shape. And when you want to store it away, it’s slender (measuring 7′ x 2′ x 2′) and easy to move. When not in use, it’s see-through and light.
The magic of this design relies on a paradox, the more you dress it up and fill it with clothes, the more invisible yet functional it gets. Once it’s inhabited by shirts, coats, hats, bags and scarves, its skeletal structure becomes full and opaque acting as a room divider and making a home’s spaces more secluded and private.
