 VERSION FRANCAISE A LA FIN

Untitled Rail is a simple and flexible solution for hanging clothes in reduced space environments without compromising on aesthetics. With a natural angle, Untitled Rail leans gracefully against any wall optimizing its footprint in even the smallest urban interiors.

In this fast-paced world we live, moving between cities, flats, even small rooms, is now an everyday reality. Untitled Rail is an easy-to-transport solution. A space-saving clothing rail that is both minimal and elegant, without creating the feeling of being temporary.

After having to move countries several times within the short span of 2 years, I always found myself facing the same issue: small flats and rooms with unused wall space. Created to transform vacant space into a fashionable space-saving solution, Untitled Rail is my response to this personal experience.

Using the same tube-bending technique practiced by the Modernists, including Marcel Breuer and Le Corbusier, Untitled Rail yields a simplistic, modern structure, feeling as equally familiar and comfortable, as it is sculptural and poetic.

The rail comes in 4 parts and is easily assembled with an Allen key

Made from 2mm thick carbon steel, and finished with a powder coating paint, Untitled Rail demonstrates extreme durability. This resilience is unlike most clothing rails often made of lower, thinner grade metals.

Untitled Rail ships in 4 parts to minimize shipping volume, and is available in 2 sizes.

  • The larger version measures H150 x D32 x W82cm (59x12.5x32in), and is best suited as main hanging rail. 

Marc Schulthess is a Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design graduate who lives and works between London, Paris and Berlin. Set up in 2011, Studio Marc Schulthess has worked across product design and interior design commissions as well as exhibiting at leading international trade fairs in Europe and the USA. Clients have included Habitat, Platinum Guild International, Hirsch Hatton Garden, Driade and Swarovski. The studio’s own label, Untitled Story, is consumer and retail focused, as well as being targeted at residential, commercial and contract projects.

Objects are part of our life experience, our life history. The poetic forms and visual play in the objects of Untitled Story embrace this idea—create your own story.

  • The smaller version measures H150 x D32 x W40cm (59x12.5x15.7in) and is the perfect solution for a hallway, lobby, or as extra hanging space when complementing its larger sister. 

Untitled Rail is additionally useful in either office or commercial space, and in short-term accommodation when travelling.

A crowdfunding platform offers a new way of launching product, reflecting the evolution towards a participative economic model. Crowdfunding quickly and efficiently introduces products to the market that may otherwise cease to move beyond even the prototype stage. It is a fast, direct approach, giving supporters the opportunity not only to discover a unique product at a good price, but also to witness the product throughout the design process.

In order to produce the first collection, Untitled Rail must meet the MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity). Untitled Rail needs your support to begin production!

      

Untitled Rail has already been exhibited at renowned design fairs including the ICFF in NYC and Maison & Objet in Paris. During these events, visitors displayed great interest in both the design of Untitled Rail, and the desire to purchase the product. Because of such enthusiasm, I have decided to offer Untitled Rail on a preorder basis. However, this special price is for Kickstarter only, and will be possible only in limited quantities during the funding period!

I now want to bring Untitled Rail to you! And with your help and support, I will be able to purchase raw materials, and complete all stages of production including: manufacturing, shipping, and packaging!

We aim at ship everything for Christmas to you!

Untitled rail est un portant pour vêtements, simple à positionner et facile à intégrer dans n’importe quel espace, sans pour autant sacrifier son aspect plastique. Il se pose délicatement contre le mur avec un encombrement minimum et un angle naturel afin de s’adapter aux espaces de plus en plus petits dans lesquels nous vivons et de satisfaire le besoin de mobilité. Notre époque nous conduit à vivre de nombreux déplacements entre des villes, des appartements et même entre les pièces d’une même habitation. Déménager est devenue chose courante. Untitled Rail apporte une solution élégante et facile : on peut changer de lieux, s’installer très vite et ne pas éprouver pour autant le sentiment d’une installation précaire tout en profitant d’un bel objet. La technique du cintrage de tube utilisée est un clin d’oeil au travail des designers modernistes comme Marcel Breuer et Le Corbusier. Elle permet de créer une pièce de mobilier qui s’intègre facilement dans le paysage domestique. Cependant l’aspect plastique, presque sculptural, permet aussi à cet objet d’exister au delà de son aspect purement fonctionnel. Untitled Rail se démonte en quatre parties afin de minimiser la taille de son emballage. Il existe en deux tailles. Le plus grand est idéal comme portant principal pour ranger sa garde robe, alors que le plus petit convient parfaitement pour les couloirs, les entrées, les salles de bains ou en complément de la version la plus large.
