The versatile "Stand By" coat hanger by Claudia Moreira Salles is an alternative to the most recurrent form of coatracks typically constructed as columns on tripods ending in arms or hooks.
This piece consists of a solid Ipe wood board in which wooden hooks are asymmetrically attached to a concrete base, providing stability. The hooks are easily opened with a tap on their lower ends.
As an added touch, a hand•spun wooden bowl is fixed to the top edge of the concrete base for holding keys and knick•knacks.
