3D Printed DINO Clothes Rack by KAYIWA

View all 10 Photos

Finnish-Ugandan designer Lincoln Kayiwa is constantly creating work that blurs the line between functional product and objet d’art. His DINO Clothes Rack is the newest addition to his portfolio of so-called “collectibles,” an elegant, sculptural piece that happens to be practical too. “3D printing technology so far has been used mainly for decorative, smaller or less durable objects,” he points out, but after eight years of research and development great leaps have been made that allowed DINO to come to life. All of the hangers are made according to exact demand through the 3D printing service materialise.com; this practice is not only more efficient, but it is also sustainable, ensuring nothing goes to waste — even the leftover polyamide powder is reused. But it comes at a price: somehow the unit retails for an astronomical 27, 000 USD. Available in three models, straight, wavy, and module, DINO provides endless possibilities for a variety of public as well as private settings. Numbered hangers with an ergonomic textured finish glide along an electro-polished stainless steel rod, moving back and forth and side-to-side to allow easy access to clothes. Varying heights of hangers make it easier for small children or persons in wheelchairs to reach clothes that are hanging, while long and bulky items such as winter coats can be kept off the ground. The module unit has shelf space above and below for scarves, hats, gloves, boots, etc. and swivel casters with brakes make it easy to place it to suit your needs. Although it was designed to be visually stunning, DINO would be a practical addition to a foyer, walk-in-closet, coatroom, boutique, or even your own personal space. All KAYIWA products are available in eight standard colors (black, blue, green, orange, red, violet, white, yellow) but DINO can also be customized to suit your color scheme or business.
