Stockholm 2014: young designers Erik Olovsson and Kyuhyung Cho have designed a series of clothing racks that resemble the regular shape of a wave (+ slideshow).

The SINE collection by Erik Olovsson and Kyuhyung Cho is named after a sine wave - a mathematical term used to describe a wave with a perfectly even oscillation.

The wave-shaped rails are intended to space out hanging items evenly.

The range also includes a range of hangers for clothes, belts and scarves, as well as a little hanging bowl for jewellery and other accessories.

Each rack base is made of marble while the rails themselves are made of powder-coated aluminium. The hangers are made of steel.

"Our focus was to explore different senses of form and object, loose and tight, bold and thin, heavy and light to find our own contrast and balance," said the designers.

"As a result of that, SINE has harmonious contrasts - soft and straight lines, light aluminium and heavy stone, openness and closeness," they added.

Made in a range of blue, black, green and white, the racks and hangers were exhibited at the Greenhouse showcase of young talents as part of Stockholm Furniture Fair.

Dezeen has featured previous work by Stockholm-based designer Kyuhyung Cho, such as his Poke Hanger, Poke Stool for British brand Innermost and tables and chairs that clip together to form shelves.

    If one of the reasons for this design is to keep clothes evenly spaced, why not photograph it fully stocked to demonstrate that it does what it claims to do?

    I really wish that Dezeen would require that product photos show products actually being used ie chairs sat in, lights turned on, shoes worn etc
