The Hangman Coat Rack is an Amusingly Morbid Means to Tidy Your Things

The subject of the Hangman Coat Rack certainly expresses some dark humor but its simple execution makes it ironically endearing to behold. Curtis Micklish used just a handful of sleek pieces of metal to construct this eccentric clothes hook, assembled into the image of a poor little man strung up.

Square-sectioned tubular steel was used for the 6-foot stand and a coating of white paint makes this support nearly invisible against a pale wall. A couple of bends in the top of the structure terminate in the representational rope of the gallows. From here, the skinny image of a tiny yellow fellow suspends in mid-air.

The slender materials and the soft colors of the Hangman Coat Rack make it look as innocently two-dimensional as a chalkboard doodle. How would you feel about hanging your hat and jacket on this kooky contraption? Stats for Gallows Garment Hangers Trending: Older & Chilly
