Paint Brush to Coat Hook

Currently featured in London’s KK Outlet exhibition, “Object Abuse,” this coat hook design is the result of a challenge to take an everyday object & remold, rebuild, & repurpose it to create an entirely new item while using as little additional material as possible. If you’ve ever felt an old, stiff paint brush then you know how rigid and useless they can seem. As he admired brushes in an art shop, this is precisely what inspired designer Dominic Wilcox to repurpose the tool into the appropriately named Brush Hook.
