Designed in 1953 by Charles and Ray Eames, the Eames® Hang-It-All Coat Rack is made using the same wire welding techniques that the Eameses 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 eight large and six small painted maple wood balls. Hanging hardware is included. Not intended as a toy. The Eames® Hang-It-All Coat Rack measures 14.5h x 19.5w x 6.5"d; the large balls measure 2"d each and the small balls measure 1.5"d each.The colorful version of the Eames Hang-It-All is the original design; we also offer other color and wood options that were developed by Herman Miller®. We also offer a new version of the Hang-It-All, but a blue frame and red balls. This version is based on original drawings by Ray Eames.
The Eames® Hang-It-All Coat Rack is an object in MoMA's collection. It has been featured in MoMA's 2012 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 exhibition brought 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.Learn more about the Eames® Hang-It-All Coat Rack on our storytelling page here.

The new version of the iconic mid-century design is based on original drawings by Ray Eames. Evoking the era’s Atomic Age atom models, the design’s 14 red balls seem suspended in air.
The Museum has been exhibiting work by Charles and Ray Eames since 1941, beginning with Organic Design in Home Furnishings. Other exhibitions included New Furniture Designed by Charles Eames (1946) and Good Design (1950–51).
The Hang-It-All is produced with the same welded steel wire technique that the Eameses developed for the legs of some of their chair designs. They went on to develop a mass-production method for welding the metal rods.
Charles (1907–1978) and Ray (1912–1988) Eames became two of the most influential designers of the 20th century, and their groundbreaking work is represented in the Museum's collection. Their designs have also appeared in dozens of MoMA exhibitions, including New Furniture Designs by Charles Eames (1946), Prize Designs for Modern Furniture (1950), Plywood: Material, Process, Form (2011–2013) and The Value of Good Design (2019).Discover the Eames Story
