american designer matthew weatherly has completed ‘thorn’, a coat rack with branch-like hangers protruding from the top to the base.
the variety of peg heights make the furniture piece functional for users of all age. for extra storage, the bottom has a slight curve,
providing a place for shoes, bags or toys. the racks are fabricated by master craftsmen in missouri, USA, either from
black american walnut or maple wood. ‘thorn’ was created for the sofie lachaert gallery in tielrode, belgium.
