Back to Basics: Organizing with Simple Hooks

As much as I love some of the clever hook designs I see, I also appreciate the simpler, elegant designs. The Dots from Muuto, designed by Tveit & Tornøe, are ones I've mentioned before. But I only mentioned the natural ash version; they now come in six other colors. The natural, black, and yellow versions are the easiest to find if you're in the U.S.; you can get them at Design Within Reach and Scandinavian Grace. For a fuller range of colors, you could go to Designdelicatessen.

This hook from Sentou is called Manto; the designers are Charlotte Arnal and Francis Fèvre of Design by O. You can also find Manto for sale at Pepdéco, Made in Design, Smallable and Kdesign. Update on Feb. 17, 2014: Pepdéco no longer carries this product.

Another option is the Ohook from Helgo. Ohooks come in five colors, and are sold in single-color and mixed-colors sets. Two of the places you can find them are Kiitos in Australia — you can see more photos on the Kiitos blog — and Hay in Denmark. Update on Feb. 17, 2014: Kiitos and Hay no longer carry this product. However, you can find them at Surrounding in Australia  and Room in Denmark, as well as other sites.

Finally, let's admire the Kula hooks from Normann Copenhagen — "handmade felt hooks from Iceland" by textile designer Bryndís Bolladóttir. You can also find these at The Future Perfect, Made in Design and Sit On Design.
