'Take Off Your Shoes and Jacket' is an Adaptable Tubular Contraption

— October 2, 2012 — Art & Design
An incredible number of unique objects has been designed to deal with the storage of specific items, yet 'Take Off Your Shoes and Jacket' boasts the ability to help you tidy your front foyer almost entirely within one set frame. The piece acts as a rail for hangers, a rack for shoes and even a little ledge.

With a piece of fabric or plastic set across the top of the Maerzgruen creation, the interior accessory can become a shelf to hold your keys, your sunglasses, your wallet or your phone. From the tubular steel, you can suspend scarves and sling coats -- ideal applications when 'Take Off Your Shoes and Jacket' is installed high on the wall. When fastened just above the baseboards, Ariane Marz's fixture grips your footwear neatly over the floor.

1. Multi-functional Storage Solutions - 'Take Off Your Shoes and Jacket' showcases the trend towards designing objects with multiple storage functions in one set frame.
2. Minimalist Home Organization - The adaptable tubular contraption promotes the trend towards keeping the home organized in a simple and minimalist way.
3. DIY Storage Solutions - The customizable feature of the piece encourages the trend towards designing and building one's own storage solutions at home.
