meike langer: beaugars

‘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.

    illy says:
  • eh, that’s two words..

    zetre says:
  • i see what you mean. same, same, but different.

    f.stachio says:
  • Chic and beautiful

    charli says:
  • No where even close to being the same. If we were to make such broad ridiculous comparisons, I could easily say wow Tomas Alonso looks just like RBW, which in turn is exactly like …., etc. etc. riiiiiidiculous.

    gimmy says:
  • as gimmy said its not sound to just compare and pin point artists who get inspired by others .. i see it a lot in all design blogs .. this is how we evolve at the end .. inspiration is a great driver 🙂

    leb961 says:
  • This is like the work of artist Nairy Baghramian… Maybe they are friends.

    Zm says:
  • Place some smelly old sneakers to the promo pics instead of ballerina shoes to see the real deal 😀
