dart coat hooks

Darts-07

i was so appreciative when d*s reader (and northumbria grad) paul taylor emailed me about his recent work and his buddy anthony chrisp's new dart hooks for suck uk. the very next day anthony emailed me himself (unbeknownst to paul) and shared his clever little hooks and some great photos so i couldn't pass up sharing them here. anthony is a 23 year old northumbria grad who works in a men's social club in the north east of england. it was this working class local that gave him the idea for his humorous coat hooks that recall the classic pub dartboard. suck uk is still in production with the dart hooks but they'll soon be available right here. to email anthony about his work, click here. [thanks to paul and anthony!]

I love these! I have been on the lookout for some coathoaks to put near my front door. We have a smallish entry area and a large wall-mounted coat rack wouldn't look right. Most single coat hoaks I've seen are kind of boring - not these!

couldn't you just carefully pound real darts into your wall?...maybe they wouldn't be stable enough for heavy wool coats, but everything else...

I would imagine the flights on these hooks would be moulded into one solid piece, normal darts I believe would just bend and break. Also these appear to be a much more of a minimal statement I would think that regular darts would look abit tacky! Oh and out of interest how can you 'Carefully Pound' something LOL! Love them I will be buying some! xxx

hi there, i'm anthony chrisp i designed these pieces and just to let you know that after experimenting with adapting real darts i found they do not have any strength. these pieces are stainless steal and are able to take a great deal of weight, thank you for taking the time to look at my work

Very simple and clever and definitely striking.

I would love these on my wall.
