Based on a True Story by Grain is a hanger with a built-in blade. A dangerous closet accessory to say the least, it is not meant to be used in everyday life. Instead, it is part of an art show aptly titled Threat: Objects for Defense and Protection. Held at Present Company in Williamsburg and curated by the American Design Club, the exhibit poses the serious question, “You’ve just heard something in the other room. What would you want to grab to defend yourself?”
In this case, Based on a True Story by Grain will probably be selected over the classic baseball bat. The wooden arms grant a great grip, while the blade could do some serious damage to unsuspecting intruders.
