Three-Legged Coat Stand
The Kiila coat rack is a design by Daniel Rybakken for the Finnish manufacturer Artek. For Rybakken, the challenge was to create objects that blend harmoniously into the Artek range but also cross borders and tell a story of their own. The result is a series of useful and versatile small furniture objects for the entrance area called Kiila (Finnish for wedge). As well as a bench and a hall stand, the coat rack also belongs to the collection and comes into its own in the hallway. Heavy coats, jackets, hats, scarves and bags find their place on the filigree clothes rack without disturbing its balance. Towels and other utensils can also be hung in the bathroom.
Made of Ash Wood
The construction resembles a tripod and consists of a wedge-shaped, powder-coated metal joint on which three slim ash wood legs are mounted. They are screwed together with metal pins which protrude slightly and thus also serve as coat hooks. Rybakken has deliberately made all elements of the construction visible, creating a transparent design that keeps nothing hidden from the user. Rybakken's work can be understood as a homage to the famous Finnish designer Alvar Aalto and the often recognisable originality in his designs.
Thanks to the clever production approach, all products of the Kiila family can be packed flat and thus integrate perfectly into the Artek collection.
