The contemporary design taste is gearing back towards those honest elements of older interiors that reveal the inner workings of buildings. The Cliffhanger Coat Hooks draw a bit more of a focus to features like water pipes that run floor to ceiling in domestic spaces, by using them for support.

Inspired by the pre-war homes of Germany, designer Thomas Schmitz created these minimalist storage solutions that come with a bit of character. Five different colored finishes each represent a different city: Berlin is gray, Cologne is yellow, Frankfurt is red and Munich and Hamburg are shades of blue.

Their simple wireframe forms take an H shape that allows the contraption to hook between a pair of parallel tubes. The strength of the Cliffhanger Coat Hooks improves when the weight of handbags, jackets and other garments are slung over the protruding ball.
