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. 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”, says Lyndon Neri, Neri&Hu.
