The idea for the Y-hanger came from observing ordinary daily functions. It deals with the basic needs all of us have with hanging our clothes. Everyone who has a clothes hanger needs 2 hanging options: a hook rack option and a clothes hanger option. The y hanger is about combining these two basic needs into one platform. The hanger consists of 2 parts connected by a flexible spring-steel. When the hanger is closed, it functions like a regular hook rack. When open, the weight of the clothes pull the upper part down to become a clothes hanger.
