Beyond the S Hook: The Q Hook

Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei, founders of the Stockholm design studio Afteroom AB, are out to reinvent the wheel, or at least the S hook. Their reinterpretation of that classic staple of the kitchen and the closet eliminates the drawbacks while maintaining the utility. “When you grab stuff from an S hook, the hook is often dislodged in the process,” they point out. “With the addition of a loop, the S hook becomes a more stable storage solution.”
