The collection of wooden hooks which form the Piano Wardrobe not only form a convenient storage space for jackets, coats and scarves, but also represents an extremely decorative piece of wall art. Constructed according to the mechanism of a keyboard, if one end of the wooden bar is pushed down the other end moves up; however, whereas with a piano music is generated, with the coat rack individual strips of wood pop up on which objects of clothing can be hung. The unused wood strips remain flat and allow the charismatic rustic look of the wall wardrobe. Because the hangers are distributed over the entire height, Piano is the perfect solution for families because it allows children to independently hang their coats et al.
