Flat-Pack Minimalist Coat Racks

'Ondo' by Kenyon Yeh is a Contemporary Cloak Carrier

— July 9, 2013 — Art & Design
Ondo by Kenyon Yeh is easily one of the most visually appealing coat racks around. "Visually appealing" is not a term often used to describe coat racks; however, Yeh's minimalist creation is just that. What's better is that it's highly functional and easy to assemble. Ondo can be put together from flat-pack without any tools. Once assembled, it can hold a max of 10 coats and has six hooks, which can be used to hold hats or purses.

There has been a recent push among designers to make furniture easier to assemble. Gone are the days of needing screwdrivers or hammers to put things together. Furniture such as Ondo by Kenyon Yeh and Nendo's latest office furniture can be put together using basic items (coins, in the case of Nendo) or bare hands.
