this jumble of whimsical wire is actually a collection of handmade hangers

when imagining a coat hanger — long triangle, soft fillets, painful looking hook — this one, familiar form typically comes to mind. yes, if coat hangers were typefaces, we’ve been dealing with times new roman variations for quite some time. nothing’s wrong with times, but for some designers and storytellers, every detail needs to be measured. some prefer functionality. others prefer functionality to be coated with a generous helping of whimsy. XYZ integrated architecture designed ‘hanger,’ a collection of couturier coat hangers, for designers who value the principles and elements of every design stage.

these dainty set of wires, resting, hooking and flowing along the bar, hold things together with just the right amount of artistry. handmade by alexandre barbakadze out of stainless steel — XYZ integrated architecture’s hangers are certainly designs to get hung up on.
