‘hangers addict’ is an exhibition curated by design consultant daniel rozensztroch on the basis of his book ‘cintres hangers’ which documents the
development of the basic clothing storage device. realized in collaboration with paris concept store ‘merci‘ on the occasion of tokyo design week 2012,
the presentation of more than 150 hangers adorned the walls of cibone‘s aoyama store, surveying the evolution of clothing and the progress of industrialization.
the historic overview highlighted vintage designs as well as bringing light to more contemporary interpretations of the everyday object,
some standing as functional, while others were conceived more as sculptural art pieces and perhaps less practical for daily use.
