Japanese designer Yasutoshi Mifune has created a clothes stand with Y-shaped coat hangers that slot into the base when not in use. Mifune Design Studio will be producing this hanger which will feature a single steel rod attached to a matching circular base and bent back and forth to create three horizontal bars. Another short rod holds the flat plywood hangers neatly on the base when not in use. "We have some situations when a clothes hanger is not necessary, for example when we only hang a scarf," Mifune said. "I wanted to make a product with a simple shape and a common material that we can use to store hangers when a clothes hanger is not needed."
