This coat rack,bench combination, called “A Tree in the Meadow,” created by young Hungarian architects Zsanett Benedek and Dániel Lakos.
The studio Tervhivatal was founded by Zsanett Benedek and Dániel Lakos in 2008. Even though both of them being architects, they comply with any assignment related to the profession, thus their portfolio includes award-winning interior decoration projects, installations and furniture designs alike.
Consists of 20×20 thick maple slats situated in 18mm thick birch plywood, creating a visually stunning matrix that resembles the striking vision of a lone tree in a hayfield.
The design skews our perception of storage and formal structural stability- umbrellas, newspaper, slippers and other small items can be stored among the slats while coats and bags can be placed on the extended slats that form the coat rack.
