When this whimsical Eames design debuted in 1953, the public’s perception of coat racks changed—these utilitarian objects could now be thought of as decorative and fun.
“The appreciation of the small objects that are around us every day is what produces an appreciation of the world around us in whole.” Charles Eames
For designers Charles and Ray Eames, play was always prioritised alongside principles of beauty and function. “They played with things, teased at them,” says grandson Eames Demetrios, who saw the process when hanging around the Eames Office as a kid. “That spirit of play distinguishes them from other designers.”
First crafted with multicoloured hooks and a white wire frame, in years following, more versions of the Hang-It-All Coat Rack were produced in a more refined dark wood and black- or cream-painted balls. Almost 70 years after its original release, Herman Miller paid tribute to the design’s original inspiration derived of free expression and individuality and released the Eames® Hang-It-All® Pride Edition. The Pride Edition is a special colour of Hang-It-All to celebrate Pride, inclusiveness, and diversity.
