Coat Rack

Inspired by a toy

Back when I used to study furniture design we had this course about laser cutting and 3D print. For this project, I decided to make a coat rack inspired by one of my favorite toys from my childhood "Bilofix". The toy used to belong to my dad.

Bilofix consist of different building elements which you can design and combine in many ways. If you Google it you will find several things build from the toy, maybe a crane or a teddy bear?

So I scaled up the toy and did this prototype. I even drew a metric and a bolt in 3D and printed it.

How do we encourage play and creativity?

After mounting the coat rack on the wall its possible to re-design its options. You can actually hang stuff on the rack in more than one way too.
