New Product Introduction:  SLIDE Family — tubular shaped, contemporary-design coat trees and wall-mounted coat strips.

Design: Designers Marc van Nederpelt, Wiebe Boonstra and Martijn Hoogendijk of Dumoffice, Amsterdam.

Manufacturer: Van Esch, The Netherlands.  Distributed throughout North America by Magnuson Group, founded 1984.

Product Applications:  SLIDE is ideal for applications where constant use calls for quality construction, in a multi-function, contemporary design aesthetic.  Such applications include corporate, government and medical offices; reception areas and waiting rooms; casual restaurants; bars, meeting halls, school facilities, residential and the like. SLIDE freestanding units can be a unique solution for functional space division.

Product Description:  The idea behind SLIDE is simple. The design consists of either wall mounted or freestanding white powder coated steel tubes that use a series of height adjustable strengthened plastic hooks for garment storage.  Use SLIDE individually or in groupings, as self-contained solutions for larger, higher-volume, or multi-room applications.

SLIDE Coat Racks are freestanding coat trees in three models, characterized by slim metal tubular poles anchored to weighted metal bases.  Strategically placed repositionable plastic garment hooks are ideal for hanging hats, scarves, coats and jackets of any kind.

SLIDE Coat Strips are wall-mounted garment hangers in two sizes, characterized by slim metal tubular poles anchored to the wall via round base plates.  Four or five plastic hooks can mount in various positions for hanging coats, jackets, scarves, hats and the like.
