As you may have seen on my website product pages and Facebook page; 2013 kicked off brilliantly with the launch of my Ready Wall Hook for Danish design brand Normann Copenhagen. They launched ‘Ready’ as part of their new season launch at Maison et Objet in January.
Here are a few photos of their stand during the fair and me looking pretty pleased with myself next to them! Normann Copenhagen were also kind enough to add a post about me popping by their stand on their blog.
I initially came up with the idea in my studio while sketching and playing around with cones of cardboard, trying to find the perfect angle to hang coats on. I really like having multiple/flexible usages in my designs so I wanted to design a hook that looked good, even when it isn’t in use. Adding the round mirror in the centre means you can quickly check your appearance before you go out.
The curved frame of ‘Ready’ means that as well as being suitable to hang bags and scarves you can also drape your coat over it; perfect for expensive jackets you want to keep their shape or coats without a sewn-in loop.
Ready is made from one continuous piece or powder coated steel, with a cleaver little keyhole fitting, so there is little to no material wastage.
My Copenhagen spy (and close friend) Rebecca from The Green Suitcase, has spotted the Red and Pink 'Ready' in the window display of the Normann Copenhagen flagship store. (Images above).
If you didn’t get a chance to see them at Maison et Object, don’t worry they will also be at this years Milan Furniture Fair in April; Hall 16, Stand E46. Or if you just love them and want to buy a few for your home they are £33 and can be bought direct on the Normann Copenhagen website.
