Details: The key hangers for the rooms of the Fogo Island Inn, a high end luxury hotel located on Fogo Island in Newfoundland, Canada range from a lucky snub-nosed cod head to an iron nail stolen from the first European settlers by the native Beothuk Indians and modified to become a spear head.

"Each object tells a small or large story that relates to the island. Together the key tags become the chapters of a book about the present and past daily life on the island and its rough nature." says designer Chris Kabel.
