Family Tree Coat Rack

Family Tree Coat Rack

Jun 7, 2007

Rare is the coat rack that could pass as a piece of sculpture when not slung with jackets and hats.

MetaForm Studio's playful Family Tree Coat Rack is made from recycled reinforcing steel, aka reo (in Aussie) or rebar (in American).

The corrugated metal was salvaged at demolition yards, which gives this colorful piece a poetic, secret history: as you sling your scarf over a branch you can wonder about what just sort of structure that branch previously reinforced, about the lives in far away places that used to depend on its structural integrity.

Each of MetaForm Studio's Family Tree Coat Rack, with all its stories, is custom-colored. They run from $1500 - $2000.
