The Bar Rack by The Principals

A baseball bat, besides its primary use, is also known as a very popular defense tool against burglars and such. But there’s also one more thing you can use it for. As design studio The Principals shows us, a baseball bat can also make a great coat rack. They designed the Bat Rack which is a coat rack made from a baseball bat.

Given its design and form, the Bat Rack can also be used as a burglar deterrent in some cases, although it might be deadly. But let’s focus on its primary function. As the designers affirm, the Bat Rack is a combination between a classic piece of sports equipment and an everyday household piece of furniture. The result is a multifunctional piece designed both to serve and protect. It’s a very interesting concept that takes elements from two environments and situations and brings them together in this intriguing design.

The Bat Rack is sleek and occupies very little space. You can install it on a wall, anywhere you have some free space. You can place it either vertically or horizontally, although the latter would be the most practical choice. It’s a simple, unusual and intriguing place to hang your belongings and it might even be useful for self-defense. The Bat Rack is made from solid maple and hand-turned stainless steel.
