german product designer thomas schnur presents ‘gravity’ at maison et objet in paris- a reinterpretation of a wardrobe where he has minimized the object to its very basic elements. created for nomess copenhagen, the simple but innovative design uses only a cord string to produce a balance of forces to hold up the bended mental tube. fabricated as a black, metal curving tube, the string is fixed to the wall by two metal hooks.
