This incredible installation called the 'Chromatic Screen' by Diogo Agular and Teresa Otta is remarkably made out of 2,000 IKEA hangers. What a smart way to re-purpose hangers!

The duo created this piece as part of the 2012 Oporto Show, which is a high-profile event for architects and interior designers. This quirky screen goes to show that it is possible to create new things out of everyday objects. The vibrant colors and the overall design is simple, yet eye-catching.

There seems to be a growing interest in re-purposed items; everything from jewelry to fashion and even furniture can be made with up-cycled materials. Projects such as the Chromatic Screen are sure to inspire others to get creative and minimize on waste.
