Grapple by Ryan Frank is Unexpectedly Eco-Friendly

Grapple by Ryan Frank, a South African designer based in London, England, is a modular hanging system that will appeal to people that require a bit of a masculine touch. The hooks are belted to canvas straps in order to be better adjusted depending on what height is needed.

Inspired by a rusted crane hook found at a South African scrapyard, Grapple by Ryan Frank is not what it at first appears. Instead of being made out of metal, it was crafted using a natural plastic made from grass clippings and recycled plastic. The material, which is manufactured by German company Biowert, is beautifully textured and strong, which serves its purpose perfectly. The hooks are even available in different colors including blue, red and green. It is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.
