Kollage Hooks is designed by Michael Rem. It is inspired by the the classical principle of the French cleat system, that is often to be found in old-fashioned craftsmen workshops. Kollage is characterised by a distinctive hook, which serves as starting point for all the remaining hanging objects in the collection: a mirror, a shelf and a planter. The original organizing system has been rethought, taken out of the dusty garages and brought in to the design world. Place the hooks, mirror, shelf and planter how you like and create a collage of useful and decorative items.
Michael Rem worked on several projects for well-known design companies, before starting his own studio in 2012. His first collaboration with Gejst was back in 2017. Michael has already won and been nominated, for several design awards in his career so far. Most notable is a German Design Award in 2017 he received for the design of the candleholder Molekyl.
Micheal Rem on his approach to design: “My designs are an empathetic reflection on simple and basic things in life. I am very grateful that I have never lost my childish approach to the world and I try to transfer those impressions to my work. It’s the way crumpled paper looks or the feeling of a walk on a foggy day. And on a small scale also the physical principles. The simplicity is often hidden in our everyday lives, and I try to capture the impressions in products that tell their story in a smart, emotional and minimalist way.”
