Issue: Demand for a laundry rack
As Azure's personal space is relatively small, she has an issue with space to put her washed clothes to dry. She uses a metal framed laundry rack and hangs it on the window, however, she needs more spaces to dry all her clothes. She has a radiator underneath the window, and the width of the window is 120cm. (the height of the window is not found)

Nouvelle Vague by Lisa Hilland 2012
"Lisa Hilland creates contemporary design with a poetic twist, combining modern high-tech production techniques with artisan quality craftsmanship."
"In order to prolong the life cycle of products I am looking to natural materials, traditional production techniques, and craftsmanship for inspiration. My starting point for a project can be solving a challenge of practical or emotional nature, or simply exploring a technique of crafts or manufacture that fascinates me. The use of materials is crucial; I am constantly experimenting with the qualities of materials, making use of them in new combinations, and looking at how they can be applied to an object.
My aim is to create products that are sensitive to human emotions and needs, as well as the environment. I design for longevity in terms of quality, function, and aesthetics; products that will be loved by one generation and then passed on to the next.
The creative process itself is another inspiration and the state of mind I'm in when working. Each project has its own unique progress, as important to me as the finished result. Enjoying the process and exploring new areas of knowledge, I believe is the key to all good design!” - Lisa Hilland.

Lean on by Peter van de Water
"Peter van de Water is an Amsterdam based furniture and interior design. He graduated in 1994 from the art-school st.Joost in Breda as a spatial designer. In 1999 he started his own design office named Internal affairs" "Typical for the furniture designs by Peter van de Water is their intelligent simplicity. A single strong idea is made into a recognizable design." "His interior designs always reflect the story as told by his customers. The are mostly realized out of tailor made solutions."
I like the design of the coat hanger because it is simple yet visually very effective. The product can help coordinate a room.

The idea of carrying a coat hanger is very interesting. The design is also attractive. The product may take some space therefore it may be not for people who live in small room, however, it still has humor and can make people life more fun.
