Here’s a beautiful take on biomimicry and functional wall art: Michael Meredith [2]’s modular coat rack, Ivy [3]. Using Y shaped components and 4 different connectors, Ivy [3] will “grow” all over your walls to create a unique and organically-inspired hanging system.



Its just too bad Ivy [3] 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 [2] is an architect and designer whose diverse work is featured in this year’s Design Triennial [4] at the Cooper-Hewitt. Ivy [3] is made in 4 colors and available at the Cooper-Hewitt Shop [5].
