Coat Rack, Frosta Z Coat Rack, 2012
IKEA’s famous flat-pack designs reduce the cost of assembling, shipping, and storage; the company relies on users to assemble products. IKEA hackers repurpose existing components into new designs. Andreas Bhend created this coat rack with parts from IKEA’s Frosta stool, a four-legged version of Alvar Aalto’s classic three-legged Stool 60 (1933). Bhend publishes his instructions online to encourage others to use his design and invent their own.
