BRANCH COAT+HAT RACK
The Branch Coat+Hat Rack prototype is a simple, natural oak coat+hat+bag rack. Inspired by wall-mounted laboratory tube drying racks, the rack is shallow and provides a full-height backdrop to prevent wet clothes from staining the wall surface behind. A series of branch-like outcroppings stem out from a striated vertical drain board. It is a solid oak, quasi-test-tube-rack-crossed-with-a-George-Nelson-bench.
