Designer Considers Nature as Product Component

Designer Considers Nature as Product Component

Alain Berteau’s recent redesign of the clothes hanger might at first glance look rather rustic. But the eco-minded designer thought it was a waste of energy to re-form wood that nature already created in pretty useful shapes. Berteau’s hanger concept therefore is a set of reusable hooks that you buy and must afterwards source fallen branches from a walk in the woods. Berteau wanted to get beyond the idea of producing a product that was green and encourage consumers to get exposed to nature in order to complete the product.
