Balance Mein Freunde

What do you do with an unused hanger, early in the morning? This right here is the worlds newest reinvention of the clothing hanger. In a very basic swift move of the hand, our super friend Mac has created the possibility for installation art in every home in the modern world. It’d make Alexander Calder proud to see and experience what Mac calls the “Mobile Hanger.” Not for playing with, kitty!

Bad kitty, down! Not for you!

This lovely little ditty is leftover artwork. This project is a hanger system that acts as a normal hanger unless it is not needed to hold clothing. While the normal hanger then becomes useless, the Mobile Hanger becomes art.

See below how it is made to balance perfectly just so long as the obvious one-hanger-per-hole rule is followed, and wu-la! You’ve got your own little Institute of Art in your living room!

    hmm, but what if i am not 4 months old?

  • Luke says:

    Did Funamizu seriously make a design that could conceivably be brought to market? I mean, it still doesn’t make any sense, and it’s still pretentious, but did he seriously come up with something that doesn’t rely on obsolete (or bound-to-be obsolete) interfaces and tech, frivolous inclusions of Star Trek holograms, and wishful thinking?

    Pinch me, I must be dreaming.

    it doesn’t look like i’m gonna be able to hang much on it, maybe a couple of wires, string, etc, but not my clothes, they’d slip off in a matter of seconds!

    I like this a lot. It would be great in a guest room or front hall and I would leave it in mobile form until needed. I have several mobiles around the house now and love the idea of one serving a dual purpose. A great merger of form and function. I would buy this. Another great place for it would be in the laundry room, providing a bit of color and movement to an otherwise normally dull functional space.
