Mr.ZAK, The Silent Servant arises from the necessity to revive spaces for living, like offices, hotels, lofts, bedrooms etc. Made of luxury material, the coat-rack is a symbiosis of functionality, individuality, material and technology.
This functional, but peculiar solitaire is characterized by a sculptural morphology, which is supported by a material that creates a compact appearance of the coat-rack. The structure of the coat-rack is based on the well known principle of wooden puzzles of prehistoric animals. This structure does not imitate any particular animal but gives a space for imagination.
The whole phylogeny of the silent servant prompted me to name all the parts after latin terms as they
appeared from their suggested anatomical function.
Yet as a school project, the coat-rack was designed from raw plywood. But the final material of the high pressured laminate in combination with three layers of aluminium made a breakthrough in its development. Luxurious thanks to its processing, durability and maintenance, the material allows every single curve to be excellently highlighted and gives the object an unmistakeable character.
