AH-111 coat hanger
Steel – White
Most coat hangers that can be seen in old coffee shops and bistros at Paris and Vienna are using
bent wood pieces made of Thonet. More than half of the traditional coffee shops in Paris could be
using this type of coat hanger made of bent wood pieces. This popular coat hanger has a thick center
wood piece that stands straight up with bent wood branches attached in four directions. Hooks of
these bent wood pieces are used to hang coats. A simplified form of the Thonet coat hanger design
is the coat hanger Mary.
A Thonet coat hanger has many decorative attachments for convenience. But not so many hooks are
necessary for daily use. A center pole is standing from a round base made of steel and four curved
steel parts are attached similar to the bent wood pieces of a Thonet. The upper and lower ends of the
curved parts are the eight hooks of the coat hanger. A sturdy round base is used for better stability
even when many heavy coats are hung on it. Mary is a simplified style of a traditional Thonet coat
hanger made of steel with a white powder coating finish.
