Designed by Marco Ripa & Design? Studio Associato
Chiodo Collection is designed by Design? Studio Associato and manufactured by Marco Ripa a designer and craftsman in his own right.
A humble inspiration gave birth to a modern, yet elegant collection. The inspiration for this collection comes from the idea of a nail stuck in the wall. This idea with the help of creativity and intelligence produced a logical form that could be used in numerous ways.
Chiodo 1, Chiodo 2 and Chiodo 3 are multipurpose wall mounted coat hangers from the minimalist Chiodo collection. Although the design is pretty simple, the coat hooks resemble a flattened nail-head embedded in the wall. One of the hook's components that mimic the nail head opens to provide a mini storage space whereas the other hook has a mirror attached to the head.
These hooks are made of iron, which is a favourite choice of Marco, and are dusted with powder coating. According to Marco Ripa, " His metal takes shape, colour and balance inspired by the American sculptor Calder."
