mushroom hook by masako sato

the mushroom hook by japanese designer masako sato is made from silicone rubber.

during the rainy season, it’s very humid in japan. one day I found a moldy wall in my room. I was worried that mushrooms were coming up. but at the same time, I imagined how funny it would be if mushrooms were to grow on walls. masako sato

the mushroom hooks have been shown at the designboom mart tokyo 09.

  • It’s not that big issue.
    So simple. Not a unique design. Maybe cute. But that’s it.

  • I bought her coat hook in London.
    It looks very simple but very smart idea. That’s exactly what I was looking for years!
    Is she selling them online? I need 2 more for my room!
