Hayfork made of Hackberry Tree Shoots
The Spanish coat rack by Auerberg is inspired by hay forks. In Spanish tool shops, you can still find these hay forks. They are made up of hackberry tree shoots that fork out into four branches at one position. These are tied so that all branches grow in the one direction. After four years, the shoot is cut smaller and bent into shape while being dried.
At Auerberg, one of these hay forks has stood around for years - just to be looked at. From this emerged the ideal of giving it a new job. Using a steel base corresponding in simplicity to the natural beauty of a hay fork, the new Spanish coat rack was born.
