Roots

Roots

How do we create a sustainable design in a world that revolves around consumption and mass production? Choosing a sustainable material for your design is part of the solution. But I believe we should take it one step further. One of the key issues, I think is that we don’t have a close bond between the products that we purchase today. We need to create a circular system where the main goal is to make a product that lasts, not only aesthetically. The product should be of such good quality that you could use it for generations. We need to go back to our roots.

The clothing hanger is supposed to illustrate something that grows and reaches for the sky, like a three. It has four tall branches with hangers and two shelves. This clothing hanger could work perfectly in your bedroom for the clothes and jewelry you take off before going to bed or in your entry hall for your jacket and keys. I wanted the design to feel like it was handmade, but still look like a beautiful furniture design that could fit into Bolias portfolio.
