Herman Miller® Eames® Hang-It-All®
Charles & Ray Eames - 1953
Herman Miller® - USA
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 solid maple painted hooks.

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 Eames used the mass-production techniques for welding wires that they developed for their wire-base tables and wire chairs.
