Space-Saving Design Objects by Vladimir Pashkov

So choosing of pendant construction was apparent. Of course, comparing to floor standing, it is static. But not every hallway gives an opportunity to make rearrangement. The form itself was thought through with keeping in mind usual hanger so that not to worry about crumpled jackets. The first version of design had nothing familiar with puppets and was a prototype for checking out the idea. Highly artistic, almost decorative image came to mind later. But if you want there is a further philosophy behind that light-hearted shape. Think of which end of the thread you are now. And when your clothes on that “little mannequin”? Beware! It is easy to be manipulated in the contemporary world. And you will be reminded of that time after time by this manifesto written in the form of sculpture.

It will suit contemporary styles, but usage will be defined by the message of the space: to surprise and be surprised, to laugh and rejoice – never stop to be a child. “Dolls” are made of wood with lacquer finishing or glossy paint. Other construction elements are of stainless steel or painted metal.
