ERIK NYSTRöM

Swedish designer Erik Nyström’s inventive Hang On rack, challenges the assumptions we make about functionality, as this “chair” transforms from hanging art piece into something both practical and fantastic. Made of powder-coated 15mm quadrat steel pipe, it is strong enough to hold a variety of objects, but can also stand alone as a distinctive objet d’art. With this innovative hanger, Nyström presents a seemingly two-dimensional object that leaps into the third dimension as the viewer begins to engage, whether by examining it from a new perspective or hanging one’s hat. In his own words, ”When we interact with an object and view it from different angles, new functions and qualities emerge. We might discover a hidden depth that shatters our preconceptions of the object." A perfect piece to ignite a child’s curiosity and gracefully tidy up a busy family space.
