Boston-based designer Joey Zeledón designed this chair to encourage people to hang their coats up properly, instead of throwing them on the back of a chair. But apparently the whole "hanger reuse" aspect —finding another way to make use of all that plastic—wasn't even part of the equation, just an added bonus!

Zeledón, who is currently looking for a partner and manufacturer for the chair, says "the hangers conform to your bum and are surprisingly comfortable. They slide on and off the steel frame without adhesive or hardware. So you can throw on whichever hangers you like, mix and match colors, and 'let your closet join the party.'"
