The design of the wall-mounted SLED coat rack is inspired by our day-to-day handling of jackets, coats and such like, which tend either to be hung on a hanger or draped across the back of a chair. SLED lets you do both. Formed by bending solid wood, it is surprisingly slim yet convincing in its stability, with clear lines, a sense of lightness and touch of effortless elegance. SLED is shaped like the runners of a sleigh and comes in two widths and versions: natural oiled oak or black-painted, open-grained oak. The back of the lower section is fitted with a series of hooks, which are not only practical but also ideal for hanging up accessories.
Focus on the material – this is the point of departure for Daniel Wehrli.

In 2014 Daniel Wehrli opened his own design studio in Aarau, Switzerland. International furniture brands are among his clients. Daniel Wehrli also supervises research projects for the ‘Textile Innovation’ competence centre at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Lucerne.
