The coat rack family S 1520: variable, functional and of timeless beauty  



Design: Thonet Design Team, 2012


A classic, timeless design, reserved elegance, and entirely down-to-earth, practical use: Thonet's new coat rack family S 1520 convinces with these properties. It is available in three versions, its individual modules can be combined, and it moreover fits in with all of the other Thonet tubular steel classics. A historic design served the as the model for the Thonet Design Team: the coat rack B 52/1 was first noted in the famous Thonet catalog from 1930/31. It probably was a works design as well. Compared with the older model, the product family S 1520 scores with an optimized material quality, more comprehensive equipment and flexibility. The size was carefully adjusted to modern needs: the S 1520 clearly provides more space for clothing and objects. The basic version S 1520 is a wall-mounted coat rack with shelf and 10 covered hooks. The wall-mounted coat rack S 1521 can also be used as a shoe shelf, and the S 1522 completes the family with a version including a memoboard.

The versions of the product family S 1520, S 1521 and S 1522

S 1520: Wall-mounted coat rack with hat shelf and 10 covered hooks

With hooks that are positioned on the back side, the coat rack provides a clean, linear look even when in use. Several pieces of clothing can be hung on each hook; they have small indentations at the end that prevent the clothes from slipping off. The hat shelf consists of translucent mesh that is easy to clean and allows air to circulate - damp clothing thus dries off quickly.

S 1521: Wall-mounted coat rack and shoe shelf with two mesh shelves each

This product offers several functions: as a shoe shelf, it can hold up to five pairs of shoes per shelf. The shelf consists of the durable mesh as well, which is resistant to dirt and water and dries off quickly. The top shelf can be also be used for storing bags or other utensils. As a wall-mounted coat rack, S 1521 offers the possibility for storing clothing and accessories. In addition, numerous coat hangers can be hung on the bottom cross bar, allowing this version to be used as a full wall-mounted coat rack as well.

S 1522: Wall-mounted coat rack with memoboard and 8 covered hooks

For this model, the basis of the wall-mounted coat rack S 1520 was expanded with the addition of a lateral wooden panel, which can be used as a chalk board or clip-on board. The panel treated with blackboard paint is completed with accentuated rubber ribbons in two colors, which hold everyday utensils that need to be on hand - for example letters, concert tickets, newspapers, sales slips, keys or wallets.
