Originally designed for children, the always-cheerful Eames Hang-It-All rack is at home wherever adults work and play, too. Here’s how the beloved coat rack by Charles and Ray Eames stacks up in a few home offices and studios (and, of course, in one playroom, too).

Artist Eamon O’Kane — whose work has focused on classic examples of modern architecture, including the Eames House — keeps the Hang-It-All in a very Eames-approved “work” space: the play area belonging to his sons, Emil and Mikkel. “They provide a constant flow of joy and inspiration,” he explains. “And they continually prove that play is at the root of all creativity.” (Photo: Eamon O’Kane)
