Hug is an intuitively versatile coat rack created by young designer Terkel Skou Steffensen at the invitation of Copenhagen-based Million. With an elementary bent rail and sliding hooks crafted in anodised aluminium, dyed as part of the manufacturing process for a hardwearing finish. Given its straightforward appearance, choice of sizes and selection of hues, Hug would complement many a design scheme, be it commercial or residential.
3 Hooks: 3.5" h x 23.5" w x 3.25" d (9x60x8cm)
4 Hooks: 3.5" h x 35.5" w x 3.25" d (9x90x8cm)
With a commitment to exacting production in Denmark and timeless design, Million cofounders Jens Kajus and Claus Jakobsen collaborate with designers and architects to create lighting, furniture and decorative items that uphold Scandinavian design tenants.
Jens and Claus both attended the Danish Design School at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, yet a decade apart. Jens focused on visual identities and branding, mostly at his award-winning company e-Types. It was there that he and Claus—a wood craftsman who spent 7 years overseeing design and production at HAY, then another couple of years for Muuto—co-designed much of the furniture for the e-Type design studios. The pair joined forces in 2015 to launch Million in Copenhagen.
