Thin black aluminium tubes slot together in endless configurations to create this clothes rail inspired by scaffolding.

Designed by Martha Schwindling, the powder-coated tubes fit together with resin connectors to create a customisable multipurpose clothes rack that looks a bit like a bean trellis.

"The major inspiration came from architectural scaffolding," Schwindling told Dezeen. "It can be adapted to every construction site's particular needs and I wanted to create a smaller indoor version of these, a scaffolding that would adapt to people's homes or to the changing demands of decoration and presentation of goods in store."

Four lengths of tube can be used to create a variety of configurations and sizes to suit the user. The system is named 9° after the angle of the slanted oval holes that the aluminium bars thread through.

"Because the whole design is derived from this very simple idea of connecting oval tubes with each other, I wanted the project name to relate to this specific angle," said Schwindling.

The three different resin connectors are formed in silicon moulds. They slot into the ends of the aluminium tubes to connect or top the poles.

Horizontal elements, for linking the vertical legs and hanging clothes from, slot through the angled oval-shaped holes in one connector design.

The upright poles can be used for storing hats on or wrapping scarves around.
