DESIGN STOBY POLE COAT STANDS
The design for the telegraph Pole coat stand originated from a passion for the contemporary stencil art of the streets. The South Australian urban architecture and landscape inspired me and I imagined the collaboration of two-dimensional graphic images with three-dimensional functional objects.
Utilising my background in graphic design I created a product, which displays a strong, fun and confident presents Ideal for contemporary home or modern retail space, the Stoby Pole coat stand brings apart of the outside inside. The soft black surface reflects the stencil graffiti culture from which it was born. The black crows represent a South Australian icon and the hanging shoes are a common suburban prank seen all over the world. With a cartoon style about the coat stand it triggers memories of childhood days and has a sense of humour that has an interest for young and old.
