This Eames Hang It All Coat Rack is found only at the MOMA Design Store

The coat rack was designed by Charles and Ray Eames, whose work is represented in the Museum’s collection, and it has 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. The coat rack is made by Herman Miller® of painted steel-wire rods capped with painted maple balls. This coat rack is not intended as a toy. The hanging hardware is included.

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.
