Inspiration for your Hallway
The characteristic small family of circled hooks by Norwegian designer Lars Tornøe is a friendly addition to any wall, assisting your clothes with the greatest care. Perceived as a social set of hooks, the Dots serve to welcome one another in scattered or symmetric patterns on the wall.
Whilst being a student at the Bergen National Academy of Art and Design, Lars received a beautiful pile of leftover bits of oak that one of his classmates had lying around. When Lars’ sister-in-law had her first baby, he set out to create a mobile that would hover over the baby’s crib with the pieces of oak being shaped into UFO-like structures in different sizes.
Upon sketching the proportions for the circles next to one another, Lars instantly had the idea of several structures, scattered across a wall as coat hangers—the infinite possibilities generated by circles of different sizes placed independently around a wall brought the idea to life.
