Mr.ZAK, The Silent Servant arises from the necessity to revive spaces for living, like offices, hotels, lofts, bedrooms etc. Made of luxury material, the coat-rack is a symbiosis of functionality, individuality and technology.
Its structure is based on very well known principle of wooden puzzles of prehistoric animals. This structure does not imitate any particular animal but gives a space for imagination. By its dynamic form and relaxedness it targets a strong group of young people, from teenagers to elder singles.
This peculiar solitaire is characterized by a sculptural morphology, supported by a material. Yet as a school project, the coat-rack was designed from raw plywood. The final material made a breakthrough in its development.
Luxurious thanks to its processing, durability and maintenance, the material allows every single curve to be excellently highlighted. The sandwich core of the high pressured laminate in combination with three layers of aluminium gives the object an unmistakeable character.
The whole phylogeny of Mr.ZAK prompted me to name all the parts after latin terms as they appeared from their suggested anatomical function.
