2000 recycled IKEA hangers become a room divider

Materials: IKEA children’s clothes hanger

Description: Clothes hangers have a way of disappearing from wardrobes. Now we know where they go. Two Portuguese designers reclaimed them as functional art. It must have took Diogo Agular and Teresa Otta of LIKEarchitects quite a while to rescue 2,000 colorful IKEA children’s hangers destined for the landfill and rejig them into a technicolor Chromatic Screen for the 2012 Oporto Show, the most prestigious event for interior design and architecture on the Iberian Peninsula. The temporary sculpture is held together by the unique interlocking nature of the hangers’ shape.

Love the bright colours and it looks pretty dang cool.
