You Spin Me Round Round…
January 6, 2010

In my mind, good design comes down to a few things. Convenience + Aesthetics are at the top of the list. Dutch studio Wieki Somers created a merry-go-round puller system that is actually a coat holder. It looks more like a piece of art intertwined in a colorful spider web  type of contraption.

What more can you ask for with something that doesn’t look like what it’s meant to be, but actually does something even better? I’ll take one for our lobby please.

If you look closer, you can clearly see the complex nature of the design. It was done well enough to win the Dutch Design Awards.
