Product Story - 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.
Design Story - 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
Strong Structure - 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,
