Seeming to float mid-air, Hallucination is a magnetic clothes hanger by the Japanese design studio kräfte. More specifically, the product was created by Yukio Kimura, an interior designer based in Osaka, Japan, for the Swedish fashion label OBSCUR. The minimalist black hangers will be used to display OBSCUR’s fall and winter collection for 2015. Mysterious yet simple, each hanger has a sloping shape and a square pipe that magnetically attaches to the metal rack. Suspended from the ceiling by wire, the whole system appears somewhat like an apparition.
