CLING: Magnetic Clothing Hanger

July 13, 2015

If you look around you will see many things in your day-to-day life that have undergone very little innovation. For example, pens, scissors, light sockets, wall sockets, doorknobs, ceiling fans, and yes – relevant to this article – the hanger. The simple hook and hang concept has been credited to multiple inventors as far back as the late 1800s. Yet, little has changed… until now. You see it turns out this little Technology Age we are undergoing as a planet is helping to galvanize other industries like design, industrial, etc. and the hanger is the latest benefactor. Thanks to the Kickstarter (a tech age product) Hangdsgn (industrial design) is raising funds to manufacture a magnetic hanger sans hook. It sticks to the bottom of a metal rod and holds up to 2lbs of clothing.  The only design flaw I see is the majority of closets consists of two big hooks and a single wooden parrallel pole – which does not play nice with magnets. However, this definitely has promise for retail. Good luck Hangdsgn!
