The world is changing. More and more people live in urban areas with less personal spaces.
We have more and more opportunities to use communal services such as to rent clothes instead of buying them.
The Turnaround Rack continues FÓLKs emphasis on strong, simple, functional products that are both durable in design aesthetics and function.
The Turnaround Rack is strong and can be used for decades.
The rack is made from 30-60% recycled steel and can be easily recycled again at the end of life.
Turnaround rack can stand alone or be combined with FÓLKs Urban Nomad shelfs that have the same material and flexible usage, ideal for urban small space living.
Designed by the Finnish design duo Our Edition, Anna Pirkola & Joel Sipila have created the perfect versatile clothes rack that can be used in various contexts of small living.
Our Edition is the brainchild of two Helsinki-based Finnish creatives, stylist-blogger Anna Pirkola and designer Joel Sipilä, who focus on functional solutions and minimalist Scandinavian style.

The colorful handles are sourced from Paracord.eu in The Netherlands. The rope itself is made of 48 stands double braided nylon and are produced in the EU. This is the only part of the product that is sourced from a non-circular source.
The information label is a textile print, printed on a material made of mix of cotton and polyester. Printed in Denmark.
Inner cushion is made at a factory in Denmark that makes mattresses for caravans, AnnTex. Due to the odd sizes mattresses for caravans have, the factory has a large amount of new waste as cut off pieces which they can shred into smaller pieces. These smaller pieces are part of the filling, mixed together with new waste from another industrial leader in the outdoor wear sector.
66° North is a well known outdoor brand. In their manufacturing process there is leftover powerfill material that cannot be used by them. In their search to reduce waste, they offered FÓLK to use this leftover material for the airbags. The textile around the filling is a non-woven recycled textile.
To everyone's surprise the airbags are pastel colored with colorful emboidery when they emerge from the steering wheel. The Airbag as a product is extremely strong and robust, ideal for the children's room, outdoor use, the yoga studio or the living room.
Each airbag is unique, since the material is upcycled. The color of the airbag and the handle therefore varies, although when ordering, a preferred colour can be stated.
