The concept for Neri & Hu’s Hanger is to create a new kind of furniture for people who like to hang their garments and accessories out in the open in a room, in plain sight, rather than concealed in a closet or wardrobe. It is a sign of respect for the garments, but also motivated by hygienic reasons — to air the garments out after a day’s wear in, for example, a hotel room.
“We are always interested in seemingly mundane and anonymous everyday objects,” says Lyndon Neri of Neri & Hu. “This hanger represents an object that is neglected and ignored in domestic and office environments — not glorified at all but in fact among the most important. It doesn’t crave attention but adorns grace, beauty and usefulness to the household.”
“It’s actually a very exclusive hanger that becomes almost like a sculpture in the room — adding another value but also fulfilling a clear function in a workplace, a hotel room or a domestic environment,” says Anders Englund, Design Manager at Offecct. Our Lifecircle philosophy is reflected in the hanger’s base, made of recycled stone or concrete, with a frame of metal. “We very much respect the Offecct brand values, which stand for simplicity and a strong sense for the contemporary communal meeting place—and not least for progressive Lifecircle ideas,” says Lyndon Neri. “We think that the Hanger stands for all these values.”
