contemporary coat hook / aluminum / multi-person / commercial
8ER by Jan Kleihues
Reflecting the principle of the “Moebius-loop“ the interlaced surfaces of the hook form the infinite edge line of the number eight. Its upper end is meant to carry headdress, while a small notch on the lower piece facilitates the hanging of a coat. The “8er-hook“ matches its correspondent door handle. In a version for toilet cabines the „8er“ offers a reliable hold for jackets, coats or bags. The inserted bumper guarantees protection for both wall and door at the same time.
Jan Kleihues works as an architect and product designer. The symbioses of these disciplines leads to timeless aesthetic. It is important to find an adequate expression which transcends the necessity. Accordingly the material selection, the detailing and the manufacture are of high importance.
