Mikado / Coat rack Stand


A foldable coat stand created as a chool project during 3 weeks.

I created it while I was playing with straws. I tried to connect them together in some way. I wanted to glue them but there was no glue on my worktable. So I used rubber band instead as a temporary joints. I was surprised that it was working.

So in the final prototype I also used flexible joints so the Coat stand can be folded.
