jongho park: MOT

korean designer jongho park has created a free standing clothes rack, called ‘MOT’.

the rigid wood spine is pierced with over-sized nail-like forms that enter at variously bent angles. meant to look as if they were viscously hammered into place, the hooks ironically contradict the perfectly executed details normally expected from a designed object.

the wooden shaft rises from a small platform, available in white or black, that can hold small accessories such as loose change, a phone or wallet.

the wooden clothes rack is available with either a white or a black base
