Materialise and KAYIWA Launch 3D Printed DINO Clothes Rack

Materialise launched the 3D Printed DINO clothes rack as an outcome of a recent collaboration with the Finland-based design studio KAYIWA. The DINO clothes rack blurs the line between design and art. While keeping aesthetics at the forefront of their design, the DINO rack serves as a functional furnishing piece that fits in a foyer, lounge, cloakroom, walk -in closet, wardrobe, or a fashion boutique. The sophisticated and eye-catching design of the DINO rack works to aesthetically enhance any space.

“During the last decade, 3D printing technology advanced considerably, which allowed the true vision for DINO to be realized,” says Lincoln Kayiwa, Designer and Founder of KAYIWA design studio. “In line with KAYIWA’s sustainability values, hangers are produced only to meet the exact demand. The remaining polyamide powder from the laser-sintered parts is reused. Nothing goes to waste.”

Suspended along an electro-polished stainless steel bar with spacers in between, hangers remain organized and comfortably swing back and forth and/or move side-to-side for efficient hanging and clothing removal. The hangers can be made in varying heights, leaving hanging space for long coats or making them easy to reach for children and people on a wheelchair. In addition, hangers can be hung on the bar in any order, according to your preference and their textured finish and ergonomic shape ensures the secure holding of clothes.

For this project, KAYIWA worked closely with the design and engineering team at Materialise. “Design is often the key to success for a 3D Printing project. Together with the customer, we modified the original shapes in order to come to designs that are ready for additive manufacturing. This guaranteed a perfect and repeatable quality that meets KAYIWA’s standards,” says Karel Honings, Project Manager at Materialise.

The DINO clothes rack is now available in three versatile models: straight, wavy and modular, and in the eight KAYIWA standard colors (black, blue, green, orange, red, violet, white and yellow). Nevertheless, the DINO rack can also be customized to match your  room’s current style and it is even possible to incorporate your company’s brand identity through a specific logo or color scheme.
