A Fresh Coat for the Eames Hang-It-All
No 100th birthday should go unobserved, least of all that of an iconoclastic designer. In celebration of what would have been Ray Eames’ 100th birthday this past December, Vitra has released a new edition of the famous Eames Hang-It-All coat rack in a trio of fresh colors. Ray, according to Vitra, was the half of the Eames duo responsible for the original child-friendly combination of nine multi-colored balls; and while this new series maintains the vibrancy of the original, the single-color models (in shades of red, green and blue), arranged in a gradient-like pattern, offer something new for those inclined towards monochromes. Ray, we suspect, would approve.
