Is this the world's most beautiful drying rack? Quite possibly. This folding frame is designed to hold drying kitchen towels and other linens, and look beautiful at the same time — even when it's not in use. Here's how it works:
This rack was designed by Studio Berg, a design group in Berlin (hat tip, Remodelista). It's still a prototype, but I hope it makes it into production, as it makes such a lovely alternative to the usual range of not-very-attractive wall racks for laundry and towels.
In a hard-working kitchen, especially a European-style one that doubles as a laundry room, this is a rather elegant piece of wall art that can double as a practical hang-out for towels, washcloths, and even light kitchen storage, like bundles of drying herbs.
