Smart Idea: Handy Tension Rod

smart idea

WORDS Annemarie Meintjes

Install a tension rod, horizontally or vertically, and simplify your space… and your life.

Japanese creative duo TENT – Masayuki Haruta and Ryosaku Aoki – repurposed the tension rod to create spacial solutions for small homes. They collaborated with tension-rod manufacturer Heian Shindo to create what they dubbed DRAW A LINE: It comes with accessories like hooks and clip-on shelves, tabletops and lamps.

We were introduced to DRAW A LINE at Ambiente in Frankfurt and thought it the ultimate Smart Idea. We can’t think of a better application for a tension rod than positioning one between floor and ceiling next to the bed with a clip-on bedside lamp.
