On first sight Coathook #1 is an arbitrary mesh of plastic-coated metal wire and one briefly hesitates to trust its functionality. A closer inspection however, reveals it as a well balanced construction that not only offers secure rest, but explores complexity, as well as the wire’s linear nature. A domestic object normally taken for granted is scrutinised for hidden qualities. A meeting point between simplicity, efficiency, sophistication. Whether black or white – the Coathooks’ colour scheme – there is always the intriguing temptation to observe the shadow cast, rather than “spoil” the experience by actually placing clothes on it.
