Four Leaves is an intelligent product that will fit happily into any space, public or private. A coat stand should look fantastic both dressed and undressed, and it was with this in mind that we chose to avoid any functionalism or whimsy. The project developed through hundreds of sketches and models, until we found the answer: a shape that was so simple it felt as though it had evolved rather than been designed. The ‘leaves’ hold coats perfectly, and the arms serve as little rails for hangers. The base, head and optional umbrella ring are die-cast in aluminium, while the pole is in extruded aluminium, giving the entire piece a natural polished finish.
