Lasso Coatrack Is Probably Supported By Cowboy Sorcery

There’s always been some kind of mystique about the wild west and cowboys. And if you’ve ever stared in awe while they roped a cattle, wondering how they could pull off such a feat, it’s no longer a mystery. It’s obviously the same thing that keeps this Lasso Wardrobe frozen in time — straight up magic.

That, or steel wire hidden inside the rope. Either way, it’s a clever effect, created by a couple of Germans of all people. In fact, designers Kai Linke and Johannes Hemann actually created a prototype of this coat hanger a few years ago, but it’s now finally available for sale from Waldraud in a limited edition run of just 99 pieces, which of course means if you do manage to get your hands on one, you can expect to have to pay an entire herd full of cattle for it.
