Tree Tidy

by Ian Mahaffy

Tree Tidy:

A hanger for your stuff!

The idea of a tree being transformed to a wood board and then back into a tree appealed to me. The tree as an icon has a lot to say about sustainability and the welfare of the planet and it seemed like a strong story could be told through this design.

Clothes and accessories such as bags that are used on a daily basis are thrown over chairs, sofas, beds and on the floor. The Tree Tidy provides a location where all these items can be hung together and therefore help to keep your space tidy.

A light, simple and open structure that plays with symmetrical and asymmetric details helps create a lively, modern and functional design.
