Stupid Shit – IV

Picture 4

Alain Berteau Designworks is a Brussels-based architecture practice that has evolved into an award-winning product and  interior design agency.  One of her designs, called Pick Up Wood, is for clothing hangers… well, sorta.

Sold by sets of 8, these “hangers” are literally just hooks… requiring buyers to then go outdoors and find branches into which they screw the hooks.  The “green” designer thought it was a waste of energy to re-form wood and wanted to force consumers to spend time out in nature.

I’m all for eco-friendly products… I test drove a Prius… but this is stupid. Not only would these hangers take up tons of room in your closet, they are dirty, they would pull the treads of your clothing and could, god-forbid, bring bugs into your home and wardrobe.  Thanks but no thanks.  Lets keep these baby’s strictly in the concept phase…
