With a wink to the Shakers' wall stretching coatracks, the base of this coatrack is a square metal bar from which a hook is cut out with a laser every ten centimeters. In line with the Shakers ideas, this design lacks everything that doesn't matter.
The hole the hook creates, allows you to screw the rack onto the wall. The coatracks are available in three lengths (100 cm, 50 cm and 19.76 cm) which you can link together as you see fit (for the real Shaker effect) but of course also form a beautiful wall element on its own.
These standard sizes are available in the colours mint-green, black and grey-white in 100cm, 50cm, 20cm, connectors in 20 and 50cm and corner pieces. The new colour 'anodic gold' is also available in all sizes.
The Coatrack by the Meter has been part of the Vij5 collection since 2014. We already knew Maarten for a while as a great designer. But we only really got to know him while travelling together to Moscow for an exhibition. Under Vij5 a collaboration often starts from a friendship or a wish to work together. So we asked Maarten if he had a suitable product in his portfolio that could fit into the Vij5 collection. Maarten suggested his Coatrack by the Meter and we immediately embraced the idea.
Together we introduced new colours and developed the product into a system in which we added corner pieces and a small oak board that fits exactly on the coat rack.
The Coatrack by the Meter is made in the Eindhoven region by a metal producer and powder coater.
The base of this coatrack consists of a square metal bar from which a hook is cut with a laser every ten centimetres. The hooks are then bent outwards by hand.
