‘beaugars’ by meike langer
‘beaugars’, the work of german designer meike langer, features two reconfigurable storage racks set flexibly into a small table. on exhibition at imm cologne 2011, the device provides an easily adaptable means of addressing changes in day-to-day storage needs.
‘beaugars’ integrates a table, clothing rack, and shelving into a single standalone device
the components of ‘beaugars’ rotate 360° to offer a range of possible configurations
the device is composed of two racks of different heights, secured into a small table. the connecting brackets rotate 360° to permit each rack to be arranged at any angle relative to the other components. this configurability, combined with the freedom of use offered by ‘beaugars”s minimalist form, lets the device adapt easily to both different environments and the varying space needs of the objects being stored.
