Herman Miller Select Program Revisits the Eames Hang-it-All for 2010

August 19, 2010

The Herman Miller Select program has announced its next limited-edition item available in 2010—an elegant interpretation of the colorful Eames Hang-It-All. Since 2008, the program has provided customers a way to enrich their connection to the company's iconic designs and their designers.

First introduced in 1953 for Tigrett Enterprises' Playhouse division, the whimsical Eames Hang-It-All used short steel rods on a metal framework, each capped with a brightly painted wooden ball, to serve as hooks for clothes or other items. It was discontinued in 1961, but reintroduced by Herman Miller in 1994.

While the original multi-colored Eames Hang-It-All reinvented the everyday coat rack and has been a favorite modernist accessory for decades, the Herman Miller Select 2010 edition brings a luxurious new twist to the familiar form, featuring a black frame and solid walnut ball hooks for a new, sophisticated option to complement home or office décor.

The Herman Miller Select Hang-It-All is now available for order through the company's authorized distributors at a minimum advertised price of $249 and will only be available through February 15, 2011. Visit www.hermanmiller.com/Select for additional information.
