The Sun Coat Hook from YDF
It may be Charles and Ray’s doing. Since the Eameses gave us their metal and wood Hang-It-All, designers from near and far have been induced into turning utilitarian wall-mounted coat hooks and hangers into memorable visual statements—with many a noteworthy result. The Matégot Coatrack from Denmark and Germany’s Cliffhanger are among our recent favorites, and here comes Sun from Italy’s YDF studio. Sun is a coat hanger “system,” meaning each lacquered metal element can either stand alone or be configured in single-color or multi-colored groupings—and that’s just as well because with hooks this striking, it would be a pity to stop at just one.
