Expansion. It's not always good. Waistlines. Overdrafts. Weeks since you last phoned your mother. For example wouldn't be good. Business expansion is however good. And the best news is that (smow) continues to expand. Following on from the "original"...

How is the Knax attached to the wall?
The Knax is simply and easily fixed to the wall with screws.
Is the wood in a Knax as delivered identical to the product images?
Wood is a natural material. As such product images never provide an exact impression of the actual colour and pattern. In addition Knaxs ordered in the same wood need not be identical.
The flattest clothes hanger in the world comes from Denmark! In the closed state LoCa's Knax is just 1.7 cm deep - and even with the hooks out it reaches barely 7 cms into your room. Created in 1993 by the Copenhagen design studio Harrit & Sørensen for LoCa, the mechanism that allows Knax its functionality is an ingenuous spring which attaches the aluminium hook to the backplate. An ingenuous spring which also guarantees Knax's durability.
Knax are handmade in Denmark by LoCa. Crafted from numerous different wood types Knax is available with 2, 4, 6 or 8 hooks, all of which are created via the same production process, a production process which ensures that despite the presence of the hooks, the grain of the wood remains, flowing, through each and every Knax.
The Knax clothes hanger is produced by LoCa. Based in Tureby, Denmark the company was, in many ways, established to produce Knax. The success of which has seen LoCa move on to produce a family of products including the Hanx Hat Shelf.
DesignerKnax was designed by Thomas Harrit and Nicolai Sørensen aka Harrit & Sørensen. Thomas Harrit and Nicolai Sørensen met as students as Knax was the first project realised by their, then, fledgling design studio. That initial success has since been extended by products ranging from, for example, sofas over industrial cleaners and on to medical hardware.
