Tupla Wall Hook
Tupla Wall Hook
A hook is a storage fundamental, a simple tool for hanging objects on the wall. Some wall hooks can also be ornaments, decorative details that add beauty where they are hung. The Tupla Wall Hook is just such a hook; its twin loops – Tupla means “double” in Finnish – are as lyrical as they are functional. Made of die-cast zinc, the hook has the air of a line drawing brought into three dimensions, a simple sketch, translated into space.
Made in: Italy
