The LoCa story began in 1992, when its founder, engineer Thorkild Lundsgaard was searching for an attractive and functional coat rack to install in his daughter’s bedroom. Not satisfied with the options available on the market, Lundsgaard set about trying to produce something suitable in his garage. The first attempts were unsuccessful, but the pursuit of a high-quality solution led Lundsgaard to approach the design studio of Harrit & Sørensen, which helped him develop the iconic Knax coat rack. The elegant and precisely detailed design was launched in 1995 and has been a bestseller ever since.
