Hanging On The Drying Rack Chair

This is such a clever idea, especially if you live in a small apartment and need to stash up on multifunctional gear. Here’s Lean, a chair with rails for its back…nothing path breaking so far; but drag it to your radiator and hitch it to lean onto it, and hey! you have a stand to dry your clothes! Super neat and super useful, especially if made with the right kinda materials.

Designers: Eunggyu Lee, Junghoon Baek, Sangmin Yoon & Samuel Sari, Seonggeun Chio

      Love the idea. I also think it could serve as a cool waiting room magazine rack?

      um, fire hazard?

      • Bar says:

        uw, why?

        Why would this be a fire hazard? I'm no firefighter or the likes but it did dry a lot of clothing directly on the heater, and I've never heard of it catching a flame. So what's the problem…?

      no, that doesn't work at all…because you still need a chair in your room…and having a chair as a rack just means the chair legs stick out and you have extra furniture in the room. plus, there aren't nearly enough bars to hang stuff on. if you actually hung your laundry then you'd know how much space you really need. keep thinking…

        Um, really?
        It's a very innovative idea. Chances are, people are going to have more than 1 chair no matter where they live, or they can-you know-NOT sit on their ass while their laundry dries if for whatever reason they don't have another place to sit. As for the number of bars, this is really meant for people who do live in smaller places and are probably only doing just their laundry, so there's room for a week's shirts. People don't hang dry things like underwear, socks, shorts, so really it does work for just shirts and pants. It looks like there's 14 hanging bars or so. Do you really need more than 14 for a week's laundry? I would hope not. And the legs sticking out isn't a big deal, really. It only takes up that little extra space for the time the laundry is drying, it's not that big of an inconveniance. That's like saying "I don't want to use a microwave because it takes up too much counter space." The pros outweigh the cons.

      I like the idea, and it even looks like something that would be designed for astetic(?) purposes anyway. The ONLY thing I can think of to improve upon is that there needs to be some sort of drip tray. I know wet laundry isn't usually sopping wet, but if I had to use this I'd probably also use it to dry towels and clothes that got wet in the rain, which typically do drip. Maybe there could be a tray/sheet that attaches to the bottom of the seat and can be detached to place underneath the wet clothes? Just a suggestion, but I like this design.

      But doesn't this only work for small clothes like underwear, otherwise it will hit the ground. Maybe a tshirt on the string closest to the radiator, but certainly not pants.

      another poor idea on yanko, this time its functionality overload. this is trying to solve a problem that doesnt really exist, how many people cant afford to just a thin rack for the radiator! and it just looks odd, seeing a chair leant against a radiator, very untidy and actually dangerous if you snag one of the legs

      First, it should be made of metals or something else which is not being affected by water.

      Second, the racks on the back must be able to pull out so that it creates a 90 degree with the frame and parallel to the ground.

      Third, the rack on the sitting place must be lower down and the seat must be covered like normal chair.

      –> You can sit on it while it’s for hanging and don’t need to bend the whole chair (so the legs would stick out and is going to hurt someone or something)

      Anyway, very great idea!!!!
