Eames Hang-It-All by Herman Miller
Charles & Ray Eames
Beginning in the mid-1940s and continuing throughout their careers, Charles and Ray Eames designed a variety of whimsical toys and furniture pieces specifically for children, including this 1953 piece for Tigrett Enterprises Playhouse Division.
Why children's products? For purely personal reasons: Charles and Ray wanted to give them to their own grandchildren and to the children of friends.
The Hang-It-All - along with molded plywood animals, small-scale chairs and tables, elaborate cardboard-and-paper masks, and brightly colored building blocks - were all given the same careful design consideration as the couple's furniture designs.
To achieve the Hang-It-All's spidery base, the Eameses used the mass-production techniques for welding wires that they developed for their wire-base tables and wire chairs.
Charles and Ray Eames brought a sense of play to all their work, including the Hang-It-All. It took the everyday coat rack to a new place that was inventive and fun. More than just a conversation piece, the Hang-It-All holds anything that slips over its colorful hooks.
Welded steel. The wire frame attaches directly to walls or other surfaces.
White powder-coat finish. For durability under daily use.
Hardware package. For secure mounting, drywall anchors and screws are included.
Fun and Functional
Colorful hooks. The solid maple balls are painted in nine colors.
A practical rack. Holds hats, umbrellas, robes, jackets, scarves, skates, backpacks, and more.
