Eames Hang it all: Paint it red

Charles and Ray Eames started designing objects for children in the mid-1940s (Charles had a young daughter from his previous marriage): after plywood animals, building blocks and masks, they came up with the “Hang It All” in 1953. The iconic coat hanger, now a classic household staple, was designed by the Eames to encourage children to hang up their belongings themselves. Trouble is, you cannot admire it anymore when overloaded with clothes… Unless you buy the whole new “Hang It All” series from Vitra -in green, red or white, specially issued for Ray Eames’ 100th birthday- and exhibit them as works of art on your walls (let’s not discuss budget).
