a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
The designer Simon Legald has created a clothes rack with an industrial and simple expression for Normann Copenhagen named Toj.
Its function is evident and its simple construction – with a rail, shelf and trusses – provides space for clothes, shoes and bags. The idea behind Toj is to bring the wardrobe away from the cupboard. Simon Legald has cut to the bone in this minimalist construction consisting of a skeleton, hanging rail and shelf. Screws and bolts are accentuated and the holes in the shelf’s design cast creative shadows on the floor.
Simon Legald explains: “I wanted to design a clothes rail that could be displayed openly – a piece that was more furniture than a basic rail for clothes. Toj works well in many different environments since its expression is clean and minimalist, and it is the individual person who gives Toj character.”
Toj is produced in two different sizes, in ash wood with white or grey shelves in a small or large size.
