Japanese designer Yasutoshi Mifune has created a clothes stand with Y-shaped coat hangers that slot into the base when not in use.
Designed by Mifune Design Studio, the HC Hanger features a single steel rod attached to a matching circular base and bent back and forth to create three horizontal bars.
The flat plywood hangers stack neatly on the base when not required and are held in place by another short rod.
"We have some situations when a clothes hanger is not necessary, for example when we only hang a scarf," Mifune said. "I wanted to make a product with a simple shape and a common material that we can use to store hangers when a clothes hanger is not needed."
Yasutoshi Mifune originally designed the Y Hanger in 2012 and the stand is a development of the idea.
