Product news: what appear to be black lines drawn on a wall are in fact 3D clothes rails designed by Canadian studio +tongtong.
Seemingly two-dimensional when viewed straight on, the horizontal clothes rails are supported by bars angled out from the wall.
The black welded-steel bars cast geometric shadows onto nearby surfaces, creating the illusion of more volumes.
The collection by +tongtong contains eleven pieces including a full-length mirror, a wall-mounted sideboard with glass shelf and a ceiling-hung rack.
Eight freestanding units have rubber feet and wall bumpers so they rest against the wall and require no screws.
Pieces are available to order in matte black, white powder coating or polished chrome versions.
We featured similar graphic shapes that pull out from the wall to form a table or clothes rail last month.
