The humble coat hanger comes out of the closet with this series of sturdy specimens handmade from recycled chair backs. Starting with wooden chairs on their last legs, Antonello Fusé reimaged the clothes hanger into art. Hang a group of them on the wall for an interesting accent piece, or display a collection of scarves/ties on the rungs. Perfect gift for an environmentalist, Pop Art fan, new home owners, or anyone who would appreciate a great conversation piece. For the holiday season, they make a unique Secret Santa gift, or a terrific alternative to the spare bedroom as a place for party guests' wraps or just for keeping bulky sweaters close at hand when the thermostat is set at energy-conserving levels. These are hot items for cool-weather wear.
After working as an industrial and car designer in Milan, Antonello Fusé opened his own design studio where he re-uses as many materials as possible.
