Canadian MSDS Studio is behind Hoop, a multifunctional coat rack in a soft and concise design comprised of oval shapes. With pegs shaped as hoops rather than hooks, the coat rack's hollow spaces offer an additional place to hang accessories.
"We wanted to make a coat rack that was functional, but without the typical jagged parts. We have given Hoop a softer shape, which is more fun and inviting than the somewhat tool-like appearance of traditional coat racks," explains MSDS Studio.
The design is built around capsule shapes in a formal symmetry between the back piece's rounded form and the hollow silhouette of the vertical hangers. The delicate hoops are made from metal, combining a thin profile with a strong hold, while the wooden component adds depth and texture to the design.
