Henry is a minimal coat stand made of ash wood. It is the result of my passion for construction details and my interest for discreet objects. My inspirations for this product are the traditional Jura wooden toys and the trains metallic coat hooks. From my cabinet-making education I always loved the dowel jointing and wanted to use this assembly as a functional piece. I also decided to rationalize the design to the maximum and used two screws to assemble the column to the base of the coat stand. All the machinings are done with only one drilling machine. The small dimensions allow a flatpack delivery box.
