The Toj clothes rack was conceived as a way to put your clothes on show, bringing them out of hiding in a wardrobe onto full display. The rack’s sturdy ash frame, metal rail and shelves combine to produce a durable storage unit, perfect for use in a hallway or bedroom space. The rack’s simple aesthetic makes it incredibly versatile, allowing it to blend seamlessly into any environment.

“Honesty is what makes a product understandable, and is what describes functionality of the products. If you understand the product, it doesn’t need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological- and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects, and makes them trustworthy. In my designs I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
