presented at designboom mart in toronto during the 2013 IDS is ‘wallhax’ by canadian designer geof ramsay. the piece plays with the idiosyncratic tendency to throw a coat over a chair and incorporates it into a wall hook. by the merging a chair into the wall the design animates its surface by suggesting space beyond. ‘wallhax’ offers two pegs at the top as well as three areas to drape clothing – over the back, between the leg and the wall and between the leg and the seat.
