Tamawa LOCK (by Sylvain Willenz) is a reinterpretation of the archetypal coat-stand. Inspired by COATED, a former coat-stand project, Willenz developed LOCK, a simple and effective solution comprising a Bakelite ball and three sticks.
The particularity of this coat-stand lies in the simplicity of its elements and how they are put together. The 3 wooden poles are inserted through a cleverly machined Bakelite ball, which maintains them together thanks to a sole screw discreetly located under the ball .
The softnesss of natural wood contrasting with the glossy Bakelite ball results in a joyful and playful item for the home.
