Designed back in 1953 and still instantly recognisable. That’s the Hang It All by Charles and Ray Eames, available now in a variety of finishes. Read more
There was a similar special edition out in the US a couple of years back, but due to rights issues, it never made it to the UK. Not to worry, the walnut and basic dark special edition Vitra Hang It All by Charles and Ray Eames is now available in the UK, should you want a variation on the classic theme.
You can still buy the original 1953 midcentury design classic if you wish, but this is a more subdued limited edition, the plastic coated steel frame going darker, while the coloured balls have been replaced with wooden balls in walnut. Slightly more 'grown up' if you like.
Get one while you can, £182 is the price.
The original was one of the first things we featured on this site and there was also a limited edition last year that we also covered. But neither of the original Hang-It-Alls have the impact of the Hang It All – Hang it Big by Ruby Anemic. Because it's huge.
Artist Ruby Anemic has created a 200 x 160cm sculpted tribute to the iconic 1953 coat rack by Charles & Ray Eames, with those tubes made of lacquered white metal, topped off by the polychrome lacquered spheres.
Signed and numbered and limited to 53 units, it sells online for an equally hefty 8,300 Euros, plus shipping of course.
