Amenity Tray by Isay Weinfeld and Clothes hangers by Kirby Allison's Hanger Project
Amid many dreams of global domination we at Wallpaper* have visions for the refurbishment of a relaxing spa and pool to our own exacting standards. A key to keeping stress levels minimal will be the provision of an amenity tray in the changing rooms. Something to hold cotton buds, cotton wool, shower caps, hairgrips, tissues and other geegaws would be good. We approached Isay Weinfeld because we love the way he mixes up beautiful Brazilian woods in his pieces. In this case the containers are made of pau-ferro wood and the containers from imbuia, cedro and ipe wood and acrylic.
In our constant quest for perfection, we thought a clothes hanger with the ideal ergonomics to preserve clothes while hung up would be an ideal addition to the Wallpaper* wardrobe. So we approached Kirby Allison, who had researched this very sector of design, and commissioned a range of hangers for different functions – shirts, trousers, jackets – in two precious woods, macassar ebony and wenge. The ends of the each hanger and the trouser bars are covered in different coloured suede according to their function.
