New in box – 70s coat hanger hooks, designed by Makio Hasuike for gedy design [cat. no: 2327.] The hooks come complete with steel baseplates and are ready to hang: each box contains a pair and there are four boxes: red, orange, white and brown; and also an extra orange and green hook- 10 hooks in all.
I bought these hooks from an old hardware store that was closing down- the boxes have been sitting in the storeroom since 1974 when they were purchased.
These hooks represent the best of 70s design: having a modular, streamline form, made from robust materials. The baseplate & fixings are concealed so the hook looks like it is cantilevered from the wall. The hooks have been designed to hang one way – to hang hats, or the opposite way to take two coats. They would look fantastic as a sequence along a contemporary white wall.
I don’t often pay homage to 70s design – but I think gedy got the design of these hooks right. The set of hooks is for sale: $AUD75
