Berlin-based designer and Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Nicole Schindelholz created a mechanical coat rack called ‘Respond’ for her graduation project. The interactive piece moves when items are placed on the hooks or removed, as it reacts to the change in weight. Schindelholz notes that she wanted to ensure that people could see how the product works, so they can enjoy understanding how technology works.
