This is a new version of the standard clothing rack, made out of basic plumbing parts. The design has been kept as easy and uncomplicated as possible—it is essentially just a frame that leans against the wall.

The weight of the clothes pushes the rack against the wall and makes it sturdy, while the simplicity of the design also makes it really easy to deconstruct and move around.
