  • one of a handmade series reinterpreting the clothes stand from western cultural traditions. Inspirations of form is the Japanese syllabogram ’to + do’, Aboriginal ‘boomerang’ and skeletal structures. The name acknowledging acoustic sine-waves, singer Grace Jones and cantilevers to make a calligraphic 3d tag that can bring you order + style in displaying the week’s clothes.

  • Bearing arms or horns, as removable options, the Sonic Boom takes a green stand to “upcycle” urban salvaged timber with a minimal ‘carbon and ecological footprint’. Standing lightly on 3 toes one inspiration is calligraphic from Japanese hiragana syllabograms for “to” and “do”, reflected as if on ice.

  • The elemental function of the SONIC BOOM clothes rack also reminds of the spine and bone structure of the human body, supporting the body as does the clothes on its rack. These are meant to appear simple and static yet on the other hand though somewhat flexible, taut and bowed, open yet closed, still and yet intensive, soft and yet powerful. The cleanly beeswaxed timbers radiates warmth, structural elegance and a natural raw beauty again rescued from otherwise wasteful disposal as firewood.

  • An alternate reading of the shape is in respect of the influence of aboriginal cultural devices, such as the boomerang, which are simultaneously a weapon, tool, sculpture and holy object. Segments of mathematical sinewaves designed with the help of cad drawings help shape the soft parabolic curves with an organic insectivorous delicacy. There is also a reference to the Nike of Samothrace from ancient Greek statuary, draped, robust yet winged with mystery.
