This coat rack by German designers Christine Herold and Katharina Ganz is designed to look like birds perched along a power line.
The Birds in a Row coat rack features pointed peg-like birch hooks that clasp onto a coated aluminium rail.
The designers told Dezeen that they modelled the coat rack on "an abstract picture of a group of birds, sitting in a row, lifting up their beaks".
The hooks can be twisted around the rail and positioned so they point up at a 45-degree angle to each side. They rest on a ridge that runs along the underside of the pole that prevents them pivoting too far.
The removable and adjusable hooks allow the coat rack to be used from both sides and the large beak-like shapes can also be used to store hats, umbrellas and bags.
Christine Herold and Katharina Ganz created two versions of the storage rack: one that hangs from the ceiling and another that is supported by wooden legs.
When suspended from the ceiling, the rail sits inside teardrop-shaped hangers made from CNC-milled birch to match the pegs.
The white aluminium rail slots onto A-frame birch legs to create the freestanding version, so it resembles electricity pylons.
