Variations on a Theme: Eames Hang-It-All Coat Rack

wall-mounted coat rack

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.

That's really cool. I've seen the modified plant hangers before used for that and the worst was a crafting one where they nailed soup cans to a board for that. By-far one of the coolest was using old style doorhandles. Thanks for sharing.
