Here’s a beautiful take on biomimicry and functional wall art: Michael Meredith’s modular coat rack, Ivy. Using Y shaped components and 4 different connectors, Ivy will “grow” all over your walls to create a unique and organically-inspired hanging system.

Its just too bad Ivy isn’t as green as its namesake — perhaps the next edition could be made from eco-friendly corn or soy polymers instead of petrol-based plastics?

Michael Meredith is an architect and designer whose diverse work is featured in this year’s Design Triennial at the Cooper-Hewitt. Ivy is made in 4 colors and available at the Cooper-Hewitt Shop.
