Someone Please Put This Brilliantly Redesigned Hanger Into Prodution ASAP

The classic hanger design is fine for button-up tops, but the ergonomics are all wrong when it comes to t-shirts and sweaters. They have a tendency to stretch delicate garments, an that's what prompted an industrial designer at design shop Ziba to rethink the hanger.

What Mehdi Mojtabavi came up with needs to go into production as soon as possible. The arms on the new hanger stretch wider and are more horizontal than its predecessors, so it's less likely to stretch a shirt while it hangs. And with a simple squeeze, the arms collapse, making it easy to slip through the neckhole on any shirt without stretching it. Brilliant. Sadly the studio is still looking for a production partner or someone who wants to licence the design, which they predict shouldn't end up costing that much more than the crappy hangers we're stuck with now.

    why not just put the coat hanger on via the opposite end of the neck hole, no next hole stretch?

    its a nice idea but i can't remeber ever paying for clothes hangers. i don't steal them, they are just there. like the salt in the cupboard no one remebers buying it, maybe they came with the home

      Your wife bought them, like everything else you own.

      Name it the iHanger and "voila" instant buyers market.

    kick start it kick start it!

    Err I've got a hanger that looks just like it. Not a new idea.

    Nice hanger, but that's not why I don't hang up my clothes.

    invent a cure for lazy.

      Oh my god where do you get them from?

    This still doesnt solve the problem of not being able to hang up jackets with zippers without having to zip them up almost all the way in order to prevent them from slowly but surely falling off the hanger (at least on one side of the hanger).

      Damn gravity... We'll have a fix for that one day too.

      Rubber on the arms will stop that. use some elastic bands and retrofit your existing ones
