Hang-It-All: An eye-catcher
Posted on July 13 2018
"Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose." - Charles Eames.
The design story. ￼
In the mid-1940s, Charles and Ray Eames began designing toys and furniture for children. The first 'Hang-It-All' coat rack, designed in 1953, was crafted with brightly colored wooden balls and a white wire frame. Originally intended for children to hang up all their things, it has become a design classic and a key element of any mid-century modern interior design.
The Hang-It-All is a storage place for jackets, robes, hats, scarves but also for bags, backpacks, or umbrellas. If you need to hang up more than what the 14 wooden balls would allow, multiple coat racks can be mounted alongside one another for additional storage.
Because of its success, the Hang-It-All has since been declined to a variety of combinations:
- white or black powder-coated wire frame
- solid wood balls (natural maple, walnut, painted balls in white, yellow, pink or black)
