Reinvented clothes hanger

The basic shape of the clothes hanger hasn’t changed much in over a hundred years: a flattened triangle with a hook. They’re perfectly serviceable for jackets and button-up shirts but fail miserably when it comes to T-shirts and crewneck sweaters, stretching and deforming their collars. 

Mehdi Mojtabavi, an industrial designer, ditched the rigid model and developed a hanger made from two polypropylene parts: a hook attached to a flexible cross-piece that, when squeezed with one hand, collapses to slip gently through a neck hole before releasing to support the garment’s shoulders.
