Nook Wall Rack Design Cecilia Xinyu Zhang for Northern
The Nook wall rack is designed by Cecilia Xinyu Zhang for Northern in 2017. It is a wall rack for presenting textile and clothing. With its geometric shapes and bold, graphic outlines, this vertical frame would pass for an artwork if installed in a contemporary interior. Few would guess that this multifunctional design provides a holder for clothing and textiles, a stand for displaying household ornaments, or a frame where images, pictures and clip lights can be attached. The size is 190 cm and 68 cm wide, the material is matte black-grey steel.
Northern is the new company name of Northern Lighting. Their success on the lighting market is so great that they decided to also add furniture to the collection. Northern Lighting was founded in Oslo in 2005, their designs are of Scandinavian simplicity and are affected by the ever-changing nature of the northern lights. Whether it’s hanging lamps, floor lamps, wall lamps, table lamps, candlesticks with candles or tea lights, each of their products improves the quality of the light in your home. There now is a fresh collection of furniture added.
