I've written about the ever-popular Eames Hang-It-All before, back in Sept. 2010 - the traditional multi-colored one and the much newer walnut version. The multi-colored one sells for $199, the walnut one for $249.
While direct knock-off products aren't so cool, it is cool to see other products that take some inspiration from the Hang-It-All.
Most notably, here's an extremely large version of the Eames design. It's called Hang It All, Hang it Big, and it's by artist Ruby Anemic. There was a limited edition of 53; I'm trying to find out if any are still available, just in case any of you are interested. The price? 8,300 euros. [via Switched On Set] Update on March 1, 2011: Ruby has confirmed by e-mail that this is still available from the Colette gallery, although it is no longer on display.
Here's a version made from skateboard wheels, from Skate Study House. [via Toxel, with its very cool post about skateboard-inspired furniture]
And this coat rack from Paul Smith also seems to draw a bit of inspiration from the Hang-It-All. Update on June 17, 2013: I'm no longer finding this product.
