Foldable coat rack. the shape of the pole ends makes them ideal for hanging both hangers and clothes hooks.
Hut ab (»hats off«) can be suspended in a number of ways. The shape of the pole ends makes them ideal for hanging both hangers and clothes hooks. Because the stand is so tall, it can easily accommodate long coats. There is room for bags in the bend between the short and long rods. The joints between the rods serve various purposes because of their hooked shapes. And, should it ever not be needed, Hut ab is easily folded together and stored in a minimum of space.
