Minimalists who’ve gotten a little carried away accumulating a few too many clothes, shoes and other goods will appreciate this streamlined wardrobe design by Rianne Koens. Called Otura Dirsek, this beautiful storage solution is inspired by, and named after, the copper gas pipes seen in Turkish homes. Rather than placing the pipes behind walls, Turkish people instead run them along the exterior, conveniently creating extra space to hang household items.

Made from blonde birchwood, Otura Dirsek features a set of drawers that can be arranged as desired, similar to Otura Family, a stackable set of wooden containers previously featured on 6sqft.

The hangers are also made from birch that has been cut with a CNC machine and laminated. But the most delicious detail is the contrasting copper which gives the design a luxe look, improves sturdiness and offers a nod to its Turkish roots.

After graduating from the Design Academy of Eindhoven in the Netherlands, designer Rianne Koens married and moved to Turkey. Today, it is in Istanbul where she finds inspiration, distilling her new local culture into beautiful furniture designs.
