A Coat Rack with a Surprise

Christine Chang Hanway January 29, 2013

Berlin-based designer Nicole Schindelholz fashions a coat rack into an interactive mechanical toy for adults; turning a daily chore into a moment of wonder and surprise.

Above: The Respond interactive mechanical coat rack injects an element of surprise into a daily chore.

Above: Schindelholz wanted people to enjoy understanding how technology works and created the Respond.

Above: The Respond is an interactive coat rack, which moves when a coat is hung on it; using a weight system and precision carpentry.

Above: See the working mechanics of the Respond coat rack in this video.
