Hanging Around This Town

We know we've been shopping too much when we have to go out and buy more hangers. Although, of course, we pretend that we "lost" some of our hangers

We know we've been shopping too much when we have to go out and buy more hangers. Although, of course, we pretend that we "lost" some of our hangers, not that we just have more clothes... And then when we purge our closet and sell clothes at Beacon's Closet (even though they totally rip you off and only gave us $22 last time we took stuff over, what's up with that?), we have lots of leftover hangers. We've never really thought of the wire coat hanger as an aesthetically interesting object in its own right, just as a place to store our favorite weird 70s dresses that are too ugly to wear and too treasured to throw away. But thankfully, young designer Simon Daniel-Brown is much smarter than us. He's designed this cool, undulating bench based on the lowly hanger and as a result, he took home this year's RSA Wired Award. Now if only he would apply that brilliant mind to solving the inevitable storage problems of the NYC-based clothing-obsessed! --ALISON COOL
