As I was preparing my previous post, I saw these pretty Dendron ‘tree’ coat racks from Varangis.
The Varangis versions are presumably not intended for outdoor use and I also can tell that their craftsmanship is far beyond what is needed for the idea they inspired.
I would love to make something like these for my garden this spring…or perhaps for a client… – I think rebar would be the best material and then painted – or perhaps some thin pipe, or conduit.
1. pink honeysuckle, 2. The Jasmine Blues, 3. close clematis
At lest three in a row would be good, but perhaps they could line a fence in a modern courtyard. I am thinking in my own garden to create a visual break along the edge of a patio. I am very inspired!!
Here is the description of the Varangis version:
This free-standing coat stand is made of eight bent tubular stainless steel poles that spread out like tree branches (dendron is the Greek word for tree) ending in cast coat-pegs. Offering 80 different configuration options, it is not only a functional everyday piece of furniture, but also a surprising objet d’art. Designed to be stable in case of one-sided and maximum loads as well as a supporting surface inclination. The finishing is either polished stainless steel (golden, silver) or stove enameled color (green in four shades, white, brown, ivory.)
