Manolo by Italy-based Ilario Branca is a multifunctional wall panel with a strong attitude towards customization, pure usefulness and design. Its wooden knobs and your creativity are the basic elements to create the ideal layout, transforming it into coat hanger, bathroom console, bookcase, bedside table or simple shelving. The contemporary unit interacts, changes and suits your space needs, allowing you to have a new furniture element in a second. Have a look at the video below to see how it works!

The project is inspired by the typical hangers of the traditional American Shaker style: the wood shelving along the walls pierced with “pegs” for placing objects. Manolo has knobs, hangers, large shelf and small shelves: you can use the knobs to hang your clothes or as support for other shelves or coat hangers. Born from the desire to represent the concept of “design as a solution,” an idea that is both simple and fun, this multifunctional wall panel meets several daily needs, while showcasing a playful and customizable character.
