British designer Sir Paul Smith has teamed up with Italian furniture brand Gufram to gives its iconic cactus-shaped coat stand a trippy update inspired by the ’70s — the decade the coat-rack was originally released. In a conversation with Dezeen Magazine, Smith described the final product as a “creativity peyote” inspired by the “hallucinogenic vibes” and the hippie counterculture. The multicolored conversation piece features a bright blend of pinks, blues, reds and black.

The rack will be released in a limited run of just 169 units, all of which will be displayed at this year’s Milan Design Week.

For previous examples of Smith’s furniture design acumen, look no further than the designer’s colorful take on the Anglepoise Type75 lamp.
