Spring 2018

Designer Cecilia Xinyu Zhang thinks like an architect but approaches design like an artist. Cecilia came up with a uniquely space-saving design that resembles a contemporary artwork. The product was inspired by the concept of ‘space within space’, resulting in a design that resembles geometric shapes nesting within each other.

Frame is a multi-functional object that provides a place where laundry can dry and items of clothing can be hung. When opened, Frame extends outwards away from the wall to form lightweight tiers of tubular steel. When no longer in use, the multi-hinged construction silently retracts, returning to its original two-dimensional shape.
