production & design

These pure copper S-hooks are created by Masaya Asahi, the owner of a beloved, independently-owned hardware store on the outskirts of Kyoto, Japan. Asahi finds any free space he can in his store—typically teeming with all manner of gadgets—to hand bend these hooks as well as other tools, fixtures, lighting and furniture that his customers might find useful.
