Just when you thought that clothing racks are to remain forever mundane, KAYIWA excavates the DINO. During the last decade, 3D printing technology advanced considerably, which allowed the DINO concept to be properly realized. Like all KAYIWA products, this clothes rack blurs the line between design and art. Suspended along an electro-polished stainless steel bar between spacers, hangers stay neat and organized to smoothly swing forward and back and/or move side-to-side for efficient hanging or removal of clothing. Hangers can be made in varying heights, to leave hanging space for long coats or to make them easy to reach for children or wheelchair users. Moreover, hangers can be loaded onto the bar in any order, according to the customer’s preference, to optimize the way they will be used. + Kayiwa The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Sioux is a handmade solid beech coat rack inspired by American Indian culture

French studio Nab Design created Sioux, a handmade coat rack made from solid beech wood. Inspired by American Indian culture, the Sioux evokes the image of three arrows embedded into a bullseye target. The base, which represents the bullseye, features concentric grooves and a red painted center circle. Three arrow-like elements attach to the base’s drilled inserts. The Sioux is fitted together using screws and can be easily assembled or dismantled. + Nab Design The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?

Comments Off on NASA’s is tossing robots into Hawaii’s volcanoes

The team, led by geologist Carolyn Parcheta , has already tested VolcanoBot 1 at Kilauea volcano in Hawaii and is now preparing VolcanoBot2 for its mission later this year. The team’s robots have been developed in order to gain new information about what happens within volcanoes. Naturally, it’s a dangerous business, so Parcheta and her co-advisor, JPL robotics researcher Aaron Parness, are developing robots that can get into the most perilous of crevices.
