The coat rack is a circular system of counterweighted pulleys that raise and lower a series of rope hangers, where visitors hang their coats and other belongings. A hybrid between a cloakroom and a personal storage locker unit, each visitor accesses their pulley with a numbered key, creating a canopy of coats overhead and a visual character that changes with the seasons.
