Materials: Wenge, Oak, Beech and Stainless Steel
Description: This hanger is an antique model made in the early ‘900, reinvented in this bicolored version. The base is built from a block of solid wood, from which two posts rise: a wooden one holding the hanger, a steel one holding the trouser hanger bar.
Servomuto fits nicely both in a modern and classical home. The soft shape of the hanger is balanced by the stripped down lines of the bar and base, and the stainless steel stem gives it a timeless elegance.
The Ebonist tale:
My sister and her husband asked me to plan and create their new bedroom. From that, I created a line called “Mesurè” (dialect for “my sister”) that included “Cassettiera”, “Comodini”, “Settimino” e “Servomuto”.
As soon as I was finished with all the cabinetry, I felt what something was missing with Servomuto. I already realized the wedge post for the hanger, and decided to use a steel stem, to make it look almost suspended in mid-air. However, I still had to make up my mind on the base.
It is often said that the devil hides in the details: this is especially true when one is dealing with a work of art, whether it is something big or, as this one time, something apparently small.
This time inspiration came when I realized I could use a board to keep its center of gravity low, moving all the weight to the bottom. This gave Sardomuto an outstanding stability, putting also the final touches on its style.
