MOL is the outcome of an exploration into technology and home furniture. The coat rack is the natural border between inside and outside. It's the object that we always pass on our way in as well as our way out. Mol enhances this role by enabling family members to leave audio messages for each other. Every member of the family has its own coat hook and accompanying playback device on which messages can be left.

MOL has a soft and analogue experience, making it a piece of furniture that fits the home environment rather than a piece of technology.
