This coak rack has no counter, no fixed coat racks with hooks, but a jolly red-and-white merry-go-round with ropes to hoist up your coat. Each rope has a button that can be secured behind a small lock, so that nobody can make off with your coat. As well as a useful device, the coat carrousel is an inventive installation that elicits interaction with the audience.The designers have shown that in good design, functionality sits quite well with an artistic intervention in human behaviour.
Somers and Van den Berg turned the cloakroom in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam into a real attraction. You can hoist up your coat by pulling one of the ropes of a red-and-white carousel, and attach it to a lock using the knot on the rope. The design provides interaction and an artistic ambiance.
