    This piece also speaks to me of the excess in our society.

    Luis Texeira\’s concept is unique, and he\’s ideas are noble, regarding environment issues, as well as making those women useful for society, keeping their minds busy.
    Congratulations for your great projects.

    Parabéns, Luís. O seu trabalho é realmente notável e digno de atenção. Lamento que em Portugal não tenhamos mais oportunidades para praticar este tipo de Design e apostar em artistas/designers como o Luís. Sucesso e continuação de um excelente trabalho!

    I love this simply because clothes hangers are such an ugly and improbable item to use. Also the end product does really look nothing like the original.

    As a designer I applaud the execution. However, as a retail survivor, these look a little nice to be “recycled” hangars. What were they used for before being repurposed?

    This site frequently brings up greenwashing, yet it appears to showcase the wasteful use of disposable products as high design. This makes me respect this site (and naysayers respect the movement) a little less.

    THAT is really GOOD! I hate those plastic hangers, and have always avoided using them, but that’s quite a resourceful use for them. Congratulations on using your imagination so wisely! (>:
