Design a Coat Stand that is beautiful, functionable and useable, using only two materials.
How might we playfully design a coat stand for young adults living in studios and condos in order to best make use of limited space in a multi-functional way?
Throughout my process I made several drawings, 3d renders, and scaled prototypes of various materials. I then decided to combine a coat stand with a room divider. I chose Muji for my pitch as they focus heavily on minimalism and small spaces and are an affordable option for young adults.
In the end I designed Kōto Kabe, a coat stand/room divider that uses the hanging of clothing to separate spaces. In order to efficiently make use of the limited space, Kōto Kabe is a flat packed design that can be easily stored away. It acts as a dual function to best make use of its environment.
