Merry-Go-Round Coat Rack + Too Much Wine = Lots of Trouble

Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam houses the Merry-Go-Round Coat Rack designed by Studio Wieki Somers.  Inspired by mine workers who's coats had to be hoisted up due to space issues, the carousel is constructed of plastic pulley blocks, fires hoses and metal weights which allow the coats to float within the empty space just above the ceiling.  The visitors at the museum easily hang and retrieve their belongings themselves.

Having limited space within my home, in concept this sounds like a totally awesome idea for my next house party.  But after realistically looking at the whole picture, drunken masses of bodies and spinning objects just don't bode well together.
