Here's some more information from Hioomi Tahara:


This is a wall-mounted towel hanger system.

It is configured by the sticks on the wall and a rope with a weight. The way to use is very simple. It can be fixed to roll a rope around the sticks. So it is possible to adjust the length by positioning of sticks. For this reason you can enjoy customize the composition freely to fit variable occasions as the bathroom and kitchen.

The weights have several form variations. The star formed weight also functions as a hook to put bathrobes and other objects. Fine rope can give light impression like a line drawing on the paper. And the use of materials and the structure are also another solution for creating light impression.

    I love the combination of form and function – elegance and robustness, and the simplicity of concept.
