Sturdy Coat Hook With a Distinctive Industrial Look: Battleship

Battleship is a sturdy coat hook with a distinctive industrial appearance. Developed by English designer David Cathro of aCathroDESIGN, this modern and sleek functional piece is made from laser cut steel with a high quality semi-gloss powder coated finish. According to the designer, the aim of the project is to impart a modern industrial feel to the room, while still exuding a cozy feel.

Here is more from the official description of the project we received: “The hook is shown in a newly refurbished private residential interior. The owners wanted a fresh approach to the interior scheme and chose to start with the kitchen first. The Battleship hooks were chosen due to their clean industrial lines and powder coated steel finish which allows them to stand up to the rigors of a daily kitchen environment“. Battleship is available in two colors (white and grey), making this creative hook design easily adaptable to a variety of modern interiors.
