Sciangai Folding Cothes Stand

De Pas, D'Urbino, Lomazzi for Zanotta

Sale price$1,200.00

“Objects must enter into a relationship with the user, and must be easy to use,” explains Paolo Lomazzi. The inspiration for Sciangai was the Chinese game where wooden sticks are held in the hand and then dropped onto a table.

A folding clothes stand with a highly elementary yet user-friendly operating mechanism that draws its inspiration from the Mikado pick-up sticks game. In Sciangai, each element forms a point of contact with the ground and, at the same time, provides somewhere to hang a coat or a hat at the top, the tips specifically shaped to hold onto each garment or item of headwear.

The eight solid beech-wood sticks are connected together by a joint a little above the middle and when they are open, they create an adjustable circumference to suit the surrounding available space, creating a coat stand of varying dimensions.
