Born in Iowa, David E. Scott received his Fine Arts degree from the University of Iowa.

Symbol Coatrack

In the summer, when coats are buried deep in closets and hooks are merely an unpleasant reminder of cold times ahead, the Symbol coatrack functions as a decor-ative piece. Simply flip the hooks down again when the mercury dips—impressive rack, indeed!
