Radical Simplicity: Coatrack from Munich’s Schellmann Furniture
Furniture & Lighting
Contemporary coat racks have gotten fanciful lately (see some recent examples here, here, and here), but the Munich design studio Schellmann Furniture isn’t having any of it. Their exceedingly reductive Coatrack sticks to the basics: a linear vertical rectangle supporting a single horizontal bar. This tubular steel construction, offered in three decidedly un-showy colors—blue, white and slate grey—isn’t radical so much as radically simple. Which, come to think of it, is pretty radical in itself.
