Alas designed by Nick Rennie is a wall hook that is unlike any utilitarian hook currently available. It is a clean-lined work of art that allows hanging of clothing or other belongings on the wall, while allowing the user to decide the vertical angle of the presentation—either the small or large arc of the design can be positioned toward the top. Additionally, Alas plays with light, utilising a translucent composition that throws light reflections and provides the visual interest of shadowing on the wall.

A leading figure in the current Australian design landscape, Nick Rennie (through his studio ‘happy finish design’), looks to explore design that takes its inspiration from interaction with everyday items. To breathe new life into the repetition of domesticity, and to do it in a way that engages the user and elicits an emotional reaction, is the very essence of Rennie’s professional ambition. For him, design is a shared process, the finished product owing equally to the vision of a manufacturer, the needs of a user and his own passion for expression. Nick has worked with leading international design brands such as Normann Copenhagen, Porro and Ligne Roset among many others.
