Charles & Ray Eames, 1953
Used instead of simple hooks, these brightly-coloured wooden spheres were aimed at encouraging children to hang up "all their things". Because the distance between the spheres always remains the same, Hang it can be extended as required and is a cheerful alternative to boring clothes-hooks, not only for children's rooms.
