The X Hanger is an ingenious combination of a clothing hanger and a coat rack hook. The hanger was created by Israeli designer Kfir Schwalb and is made from powder-coated, bent steel. The hanger gets its name from its unique design. The "X" shape allows for the hanger to hold multiple articles of clothing at once. Coat hooks and clothing hangers perform the same functions, yet remain a world apart in the household.
By making these two functions one, the X Hanger saves space and makes a previously one-dimensional item multifunctional. It also doesn't hurt that Schwalb's design is eye-catching, coming in a variety of colors. As more and more people move into urban areas there will be a need for designs like the X Hanger which save space and look good.
