An architectural coat-hook designed by Erik Höglund for Boda Smide, Sweden, C.1965.

When Boda glassworks expanded during the 1960's to include workshops for wood & metal, their designers were granted the freedom to delve into new materials and explore their creative potential.

Erik Höglund's distinctive aesthetic found a perfect match in the raw qualities of iron; the rustic charm and handmade appeal associated with Höglund's work could be achieved in metal with outstanding results.

This Brutalist coat-hook embodies Höglund's handwriting and distills many facets of his aesthetic into one striking design. Höglund was often inspired by antique or ancient artefacts, and the scale & severity of this wonderful object gives the impression that it belongs to a castle or ancient inn. 

Höglund was often inspired by Swedish folklore, with animals & beasts being a prominent feature of his work. This design features a hammered backplate consisting of two large curls that resemble the horns of a ram.

The design's attractive finial consists of a wooden sphere intended to hang hats. This large pine ball, produced by Boda's carpentry workshop, is stained blue in an unexpected but wholly brilliant fashion. This thoughtful touch is masterly, and brings this rustic design out of history and into a contemporary interior setting.
