    About this artwork
    "The notion of having the medical kit readily available in plain sight in an accessible part of the house led us to the idea of using Mr. Watson, the coat hanger (more on that later). 
    Usually, a coat hanger is located in the entrance or hallway of a home – it would thus be within reach for everyone.

    By partnering up the medical kit with our snazzy coat hanger, Mr. Watson, they each got their own upgrade – the former became a design piece, and Mr. Watson got a medical license.
    Our Medkit does not stray far from its vernacular – unassuming, unpretentious, cool, and hoping it’ll never be called upon.

    Hat and coat hanger made of bent steel with black powder-coated finish, carrying a custom-made medical kit which opens up while hanging from its docking station. The Medkit can also be carried away as a backpack for off-site interventions."
