Parallelogram Parking Wardrobe

stores clothes and makes them easier to see and take out

the argument:
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 push the other garments to either side in order to grip them properly.

Angled parking makes cars less difficult to reverse out of a space. They are also easier to see because if you look along the front sight line you see some of their sides as well.

the logic:
Clothes which are angle parallel parked will therefore be easier to see and easier to retrieve.

the solution:
This is the rationale behind the parallelogram wardrobe. If you cannot deal with the radical, geometric shape in your conventional home, 10zag enterprises can supply you with a more discrete alternative.

We can sell you two wedge shaped spacers (adjustable) which will convert the internal space of your existing wardrobe into that of a parallelogram.

I was going to post the Walldrobe but it's a bit similar to... Velcro_20Walls
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.
