Rustic Stitched Coat Racks

Leather Cord Replaced Nails in Assembling the Cancan Coat Hanger

— January 25, 2013 — Art & Design
The basic tactile construction of the Cancan Coat Hanger has a much greater appeal than many pieces fixed by screws and nails. The four timber sticks that make up the minimalist object have been meticulously bound by a leather cord. The honest expression of the piece's assembly communicates the care and craftsmanship that went into it.

Dig a little deeper into the GUD Conspiracy creation and you'll find an unexpected layer behind the design of the seemingly simple hatrack. Measuring 1.7 meters like the average height of a cancan dancer, the object is actually a symbolic representation of the vivacious dance. The splayed branches of the top and bottom channel the movement of one's limbs and attire and the laced-up middle of the WEWOOD Cancan Coat Hanger is like the costume corset.
Trend Themes
1. Tactile Construction - Exploring alternative methods of assembly, such as using leather cord instead of traditional screws and nails, can create unique and appealing tactile experiences for consumers.
2. Minimalist Design - Embracing minimalism in design can convey a sense of simplicity and craftsmanship, resonating with consumers who appreciate honest and thoughtful creations.
3. Symbolic Representations - Incorporating symbolic elements into the design of products, like the symbolic representation of a dance in the Cancan Coat Hanger, can add depth and meaning to the user experience.
Industry Implications
1. Furniture and Home Decor - The use of alternative assembly methods and incorporation of symbolic elements can disrupt the traditional furniture and home decor industry, offering consumers unique and meaningful pieces for their living spaces.
2. Fashion and Accessories - The concept of minimalist design and the use of tactile materials like leather cord can create opportunities for disruption in the fashion and accessories industry, appealing to consumers who value simplicity and craftsmanship.
3. Art and Design - By exploring new methods of assembly and incorporating symbolic elements, artists and designers can disrupt the art and design industry, creating thought-provoking and experiential pieces that go beyond traditional boundaries.
