First off thank you for the initiative and will to contribute to the house!
Clothes swap rack
A permanent clothing rack in the Middle room/Pillar room wouldn’t really work for a couple of different reasons. But it’s very possible to make something happen in the already dedicated wardrobe. You could for example mark a segment of the wardrobe with some black tape or the like and make a nice framed sign describing the rules and conditions.
I will say though that this will likely not be a completely maintenance free project as we already have an issue with forgotten clothes remaining in the wardrobe indefinitely. When we had a dedicated Lost and Found-chest at the Node it was constantly full and very rarely did people come back for their stuff (when it’s genuinely valuable they call the next day and then pick it up very shortly afterwards). Basically it means clutter and more work for someone in the end, and that someone usually ends up being me or Joannis. If the clothes swapping rack has some minimum threshold in terms of quality of the items then that could be a different story of course!
If you want to do this it would require a commitment from your part when it comes to regularly clearing out and removing clothes that doesn’t find a new owner with some time decided upon time frame. We will also need to have a good way of removing these clothes for weekends when we rent out the spaces to big events as we then need 100% of the wardrobe free (once corona event restrictions are lifted).
Have you considered doing this as a recurring event rather than a permanent passive installation? I think that could work much better as you then get a much bigger variety to choose from and those events tend to be very popular. It also adds a social aspects of course and would bring more people to the house and the Node.
What size are you thinking of here? Have seen the bulletin board that we already have in the entrance hall where you take off your shoes? It hasn’t seen that much use yet so I’m not convinced that there is a big need for this overall. How is it used at Klustret and who keeps it updated (removing old event invites and so on)?
