AHĀ-NEK is a minimal, sustainable, innovative cloth hanger made to protect clothing pieces with necks and fixed collars. Consisting of two
interlocking, wooden sticks, the hanger slides easily in and out any garment’s neck, without stretching it. The prototype was produced
with leftover bamboo and the manufacturing is based on local timber, allowing the design to actively support a circular and eco-friendly
way of making. Aesthetically similar to chopsticks, it does not only reproduce the shape, but also the logic; an elegant product, quick and
easy to assemble with maximum efficiency.
