Canadian multidisciplinary design studio +tongtong
created a series of clothing racks for a Toronto clothing retailer. Les Ailes Noires Collection consists of 11 different freestanding units weighted toward the wall that are both stable, and movable.
“I was trying to create something that was more than a hanging rail on wheels or wall system” says +tongtong principal John Tong. Tong was inspired by the simplicity of simple black line drawings and how those lines can communicate three dimensions, which led to an exploration of shapes that play with the sense of spatial and volumetric perception.
