Alain Berteau Designworks has developed an interesting alternative to traditional metal/plastic/wood hangers in its commitment to pursue innovative design solutions within the context of ecology.

Sometimes design is about new behavior, not new product. Thinking beyond recycling, why waste energy shaping wood when nature is already doing such a good job? Sold by sets of 5, these hanger hooks require you take a walk in a natural environment to complete the object with some fallen branches.

The project was designed for the brussels based non-profit organisation Les Petits Riens, which provides social reinsertion via the collecting and selling of second-hand clothes and used furniture.
