Unexpectedly Intriguing!
30 November 2023

It's something you probably wouldn't ever notice unless it were a problem, but hanging coats and other clothes take up a surprising amount of space.

How would that be a problem? If you lived anywhere space is a premium, such as an apartment without closets, you might find dedicating space just for hanging up your coats or clothes imposes a larger than expected penalty on you. Freestanding wardrobes are a traditional solution, but one that might take up too much of your limited floor space. The alternative solution of just tossing your clothes anywhere is really adding the problem of clutter to your living space without doing anything to solve the other problems you have.

When Simone Giertz moved to Los Angeles, she encountered these problems. They bothered her so much that she spent three years working up a unique solution for them: hinged, folding clothes hangers. In the following video she describes how she solved those problems:

She is in the process of turning her solution into a product you can buy, via a Kickstarter campaign that will run through Friday, 16 December 2023. She was seeking $50,000 in pledges but as of this writing, has received pledges in excess of $300,000, so the project is going to move forward and become a real product.

For us, she's provided a great example of outside the box thinking because her "Coat Hingers" do just that, with the boxes being either closets or wardrobes.
