greek designer yiannis ghikas has created the tri-foot coat hanger ‘game of trust’ with
the intention ‘to trust and to be trusted, to support and to be supported, creating a seemingly
fragile but yet viable state of equilibrium.’

the construction consists of three identical y-shaped elements,
each one supporting and at the same time is supported by one of the others, resulting in an embrace
that transforms the units into one. made of solid wood, modular, easy to assemble and disassemble,
easy to pack and easy to carry. the coat hanger was on display at milan design week 2011 by miniform.
