Tall Poppy

Inspired by the aesthetic of traditional men’s suit valets, Tall Poppy is the newest work from Melbourne-via-Kazakhstan designer Anara Mailybayeva.

Inspired by the aesthetic of traditional men’s suit valets, Tall Poppy is the newest work from Melbourne-via-Kazakhstan designer Anara Mailybayeva.

According to Mailybayeva, Tall Poppy is designed for “those who have a bad habit of hanging their clothes on the backs of chairs”, as well as those who “can’t decide what to wear in the morning”. Designed to hold a number of wardrobe items simultaneously, Tall Poppy keeps clothes and accessories in order while displaying them in a charming way (and for this reason could be used in retail as well as domestic spaces). The design is made from marine plywood board with brass furnishings.

Mailybayeva presented Tall Poppy to a panel and audience last week at Corporate Culture’s Design Pitch event, as part of the Interior Design Excellence Awards‘ 2012 IDEA Week. The work was presented to a panel – including Corporate Culture Managing Director Richard Munao, Inside magazine editor Alexa Kempton and industrial designer Adam Goodrum – and voted for by the audience from four other designs to win the prestigious prize: a trip to the 2013 Milan Furniture Fair.

Tall Poppy will also be featured in this week’s Workshopped 12 exhibition in Sydney, exhibiting work from over 60 Australian and New Zealand designers.
