Clothes stored in a
conventional manner inside an ordinary
wardrobe are hard to see, because they
only reveal a small profile i.e. their
outside edge. They are also
harder to take out because you must
the other garments to either side in order
to grip them properly.
parking makes cars less difficult
reverse out of a space. They are also
easier to see because if you look along
front sight line you see some of their
Clothes which are
parallel parked will therefore be easier to
see and easier to retrieve.
This is the rationale
behind the parallelogram
wardrobe. If you cannot deal with the
radical, geometric shape in your
conventional home, 10zag enterprises

space of your existing wardrobe into that

Not so great for storing clean clothes though. [theleopard, Mar 27 2008]
||Is this the application of the Apple "Cover Flow" concept to clothes storage?
||Actually, I would get this. If not for the practicality, then for the abnormality...
||The reason it works with cars is due to their depth. If facing the line of cars from a perpendicular perspective you will be able to see as much of the vehicle's side as you can the vehicle's rear (or close enough).
||Because clothes are near enough flat, the increased surface area that would be achieved by turning them to one side would be negligible.
||What you need to do, then, is make the coat hangers 5x as thick so as to see more of them, but that negates the storage aspect of the wardrobe. Perhaps, instead, one might consider making their bedroom wallpaper out of coat hangers and displaying all their clothes in but a glance.
||Edit - like this [linky] but with hangers.
