The HAL is a coat rack that showcases UTIL’s principles in a way that only such a simple piece can.
Designed by UTIL’s creative director, Manuel Amaral Netto, HAL was designed as an unobstructive solution that could seamlessly blend in the smallest of spaces, while retaining a bold but subtle design.
Made from a durable metal sheet, its curved shape allows the top to be used as a high shelf for your belongings, while the bottom has been folded and cut to physically create the rack’s hooks.
Such a straightforward design results in self-explanatory uses: hang your outerwear and use it to keep your belongings at hand. A discreet and functional piece of furniture that adds a sense of lightness to your entryway.
