Hanging Stickers

Boyuan Ling

A hanging system in the entryway is an almost universal tool which addresses people’s daily needs. Common hanging hooks often position items hanging one over another. Items underneath other items are difficult to notice and hard to take out. Hanging Stickers is about hanging organization. The “loop sticks” and “sticks” are adjustable and snap into place in order to hang multiple objects. The different sets of sticks and loop sticks can be reconfigured based upon lifestyle preferences. The Loll recycled plastic materials are ideal for this product because the snap-fit connections eliminate the need for any hardware.

Inspiration

When I first saw Vignelli’s design, I was impressed by the simplicity. Especially the Compact Stacking Cups he designed for Heller in 1970. The simple cylinder makes people think that’s the cup should looks like. When I jump into making entryway furniture for Loll Design, the first thing I concerned about is keeping the simplicity.

Research

I began with searching hanging system in entryway space. Common hanging hooks often position items hanging one over another. Items underneath other items are difficult to notice and hard to take out.

Process

For designing a product for the company who manufactures all the pieces by CNN machine, fitting to the system is significant. I started sketching to figure out the reasonable format and made a mock up by regular shop machines, which work can be easily done by CNN. After that, I tested how it works in entryway space for multiple objects. Based on human factor, I changed a little about sticks layout and product size.
