PP961 Hang On
for PP Møbler
PP Mobler’s Hang On was driven by Thomas E. Alken’s desire to give exceptional scrap wood pieces a purpose beyond burning or being left unused. Enchanting pieces in ash, maple, oak, beech, walnut, cherry, and even unidentified wood types became his muse. Each fragment, a unique color sample, possessed individual beauty and an intriguing allure combined in various mixtures.
It comprises two essential parts — a rail and a hanger — the beauty lies in its versatility. This hanger, crafted in diverse woods based on the workshop’s current activity, invites you to create your personalized combination of wood types. Assembled effortlessly without the need for glue or tools, this hanger is a testament to the art of repurposing and turning waste wood into a functional and visually stunning accessory.
