Hanging Rope Coatrack Doesn't Waste an Inch of Floor Space

By Andrew Liszewski on at

If you live in a small flat, you probably don't have enough floor space to donate to a coat rack. But if you still need a place to drop your coat, you'll be gobsmacked by this brilliantly simple hanging roberope with five molded hooks along its length.

Designed by German minimalists Justus Kraenzle and Jan-Patric Metzger, the 13-foot marine rope can be installed by simply looping a hangman's knot on one end over a support that's sturdy enough to support whatever you intend to hang on it. And the rope's reinforced core that holds the shape of the five hooks also ensures it hangs perfectly centered no matter how the weight is distributed on it. If only the roberope website were more forthcoming with pricing info this would be perfect for every room in your home.
