Can you improve on a design classic? Herman Miller are giving it a go with their limited edition of the Eames' iconic Hang-It-All design.
Designed in 1953, the Hang-It-All was intended to encourage kids to hang up their colours, through its brightly coloured wooden spheres. This limited edition is definitely one for grown-ups then, as the coloured spheres have been replaced by a solid walnuts balls. The more somber look is reinforced by the black frame.
I can't help thinking the make-over loses the original object's sense of fun somewhat but if you like the look, better snap one up soon as it's only going to be in production until early 2011.
And better start saving too, as this edition will set you back $249.
