Product Description

Eames® Hang-It-All Coat Rack

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames, whose work is represented in the Museum's collection, this coat rack uses the same wire welding techniques they developed for manufacturing their wire chair and table bases. The design is childlike in its use of color, and boldly sophisticated in its reinterpretation of the simple coat rack. Made by Herman Miller® of painted steel-wire rods capped with painted maple balls. Hanging hardware is included. Not intended as a toy.

The Hang-It-All Coat Rack was featured in MoMA's exhibition Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900-2000, an overview of the modernist preoccupation with children and childhood as a paradigm for progressive design thinking. The Museum's Department of Architecture and Design brings together school architecture, clothing, playgrounds, toys and games, children's hospitals and safety equipment, nurseries, furniture, and books to examine individual and collective visions for the material world of children.

About the Designers

Charles Eames & Ray Eames

Husband-and-wife design team Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames were among the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Their landmark contributions include furniture, architecture, film, and graphics. They were pioneers in the molding of plywood, which was developed from their experiments and projects for the U.S. Navy. Their association with the Museum goes back to 1940, with a joint entry with Eero Saarinen in the MoMA competition "Organic Design in Home Furnishings." Since then nearly 100 examples of their work have entered the Museum's design collection.
