Hang It All
Charles and Ray Eames, 1953
Herman Miller®, U.S.A.
In the mid-1940s, Charles and Ray Eames began designing toys and furniture for children, including molded plywood animals, colorful building blocks and whimsical masks. “We have to take pleasure seriously,” said Charles Eames, and the Hang-It-All is an example of this mantra. With a sense of playful originality that Charles and Ray Eames brought to all their works, the Hang-It-All first appeared in 1953 as a place made for a child's belongings. But for all its whimsy, the Hang-It-All is a useful piece of art used by everyone.
Made with a sturdy steel frame with a powder coat finish and solid wood balls, this design was created using the same technique for simultaneously welding wires that the Eames' developed for their low table bases and wire chairs. For secure mounting, the hardware package includes drywall anchors and screws.
First crafted with multicolored balls and a white frame, the design now also comes in all-black or all-white, and white or black frame with walnut balls.
