Subway London Tube Coat Hooks / Umbra


The classic Tube map dates back to 1931 and is still an iconic price of work. It is also still influencing designers today, as the Umbra Subway coat hooks show. The hooks are of course based on the diagrammatic map of London’s Underground network and as such, are instantly recognisable, as well as being quite a bold / retro design statement for your hallway. There are two options, a plain black version or the much more eye-catching coloured version. Both consist of metal strips with 10 raised hooks, with each hook able to hold 2.26 kg in weight. Mounting hardware is included too, you’ll be pleased to know. £28.75 is the price online — viaRetro To Go
