Creating Mangrove

The past few weeks I have been working on building a final production quality prototype of a clothing rack design that I'm calling Mangrove. The design seemed like a tree that was growing vertically and horizontally, reminding of the unique mangrove trees that grow in the tropics. The product is made from oak dowels with a wax finish, and felt feet to protect your floors from scuffs and scratches.
