Plus minus will change your life, 2014
When some element is added or removed from the existing product, its design or function of the product can be changed. In this project, I wanted to check the potential for changes of the design by adding or removing lines. I chose a hanger, in particular, that is composed with frames, with multiple lines. When I come home tired, even hanging the clothes that I take off feels tiresome. I wish there is a hanger that you can simply throwing the clothes to hang them. I got the inspiration of this work from this experience. By adding more lines to the hanger, the amount I can hang on the hanger has increased. The simple action of adding lines increases the hanger’s functions. Now I could throw my clothes to hanger, and they hanged in between the lines. The effort of hanging clothes is decreased. By using plus design, the functions of the hanger are additionally improved. After then, I considered about minus design. This time, I removed some frames from the hanger as remove lines. When the number of the frames is reduced, the size of the hanger became smaller. Since I have a small room, many clothes are hung on the chair because there is no space for them. So I wanted to secure some space by minimizing the hanger. By reducing the lines from the hanger and fixing it on the ceiling, I could save the space where the original hanger was.
