Things That Look Like Other Things (That We've Posted): The "Hang-Over" by Labyrinth Products

Things That Look Like Other Things (That We've Posted): The "Hang-Over" by Labyrinth Products:

Barcelona-based Labyrinth Studio has a couple interesting products available for sale, including this wall-mounted coat rack—a clotheshanger, of sorts—that consists of seven readymade hangers mounted, upside-down, to a wooden frame.

It's a counterpart (if not quite a perfect complement) to Joey Zel├ędon's instant-classic "Coat Check" chair. Of course, each design points to a different re-purposing of the same inspiration: Zel├ędon's concept turns the bottom of the hanger into a seating surface as the metal frame doubles as a storage system for hangers. The "Hang-Over," on the other hand, exploits the hook, retaining similar functionality to the original object.
