Product description

The twin supports of the Kiila Coat Rack are united by a horizontal rack, allowing for the storage of coats and other items. Kiila is Finnish for “wedge,” and a simple system of connecting wooden legs with wedge-shaped metal joints is behind the Kiila series of hallway furniture. While the legs are made of solid ash, the rack is formed from bent sheet steel and offers sturdy support. Versatile, useful, and discreet, the Kiila Coat Rack aids organisation. An exercise in rational design and engineered construction, the sculptural Kiila Coat Rack is a design in which all aspects of construction are visible.

Concept

Kiila means “wedge” in Finnish, and a simple system of connecting wooden legs with wedge-shaped metal joints is behind the Kiila series of hallway furniture. The Kiila coat stand, coat rack, bench, and podium are exercises in rational design and engineered construction by Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken. These small pieces of furniture aid organisation, and can be seen as supporting elements in an interior – versatile, useful, and discreet.

Key to their design is an honest and clever use of industrial techniques and standard elements in conjunction with a subtle sculptural nature in which all aspects of construction are made visible. Rybakken has created a series with timeless appeal and a quiet beauty.
