hook by jean nouvel

I love the highly functionality of Hook yet it is so simple and basic in design.

Inspired by computer punch cards, Jean Nouvel’s Hook is a storage surface, with flexible shelves and containers that hang from hidden joints. “Creating architecture,” affirms Jean Nouvel, “means imbuing personal’s creation, be it a building, a piece of furniture or a garden, with the values of one’s own culture and civilization.” When he designs an object or a piece of furniture, the architect first thinks about functionality and about achieving an “elementary design” that corresponds to the essence of things.
