  • Description

    Like no other colour, black evokes a timeless elegance. Vitra has applied this insight to the new Black Collection, which presents several new accessories and design objects along with re-editions of classic pieces – all in shades of black.

    The Hang It All originally designed as a children's wardrobe by Charles and Ray Eames, which to date has been available in colourful and bright ver- sions, is now additionally available in black and brown versions. Like previous Hang It Alls, the rollers are made of wood, but in contrast with their painted finish, the dark model's rollers show part of the wood grain emerging. This lends them a natural, almost hand-crafted air.

    Charles & Ray Eames

    Charles Eames, born 1907 in St. Louis, Missouri, studied architecture at Washington University in St. Louis and opened his own office together with Charles M. Gray in 1930. In 1935 he founded an architectural firm with Robert T. Walsh. After receiving a fellowship in 1938 from the Cranbrook Academy of Art, he moved to Michigan and assumed a teaching position in the design department the following year. In 1940, he and Eero Saarinen won first prize for their joint entry in the competition Organic Design in Home Furnishings organized by the New York Museum of Modern Art. During the same year, Eames became head of the department of industrial design at Cranbrook, and in 1941 he married Ray Kaiser.

    Ray Eames, née Bernice Alexandra Kaiser, was born in Sacramento, California in 1912. She attended the May Friend Bennet School in Millbrook, New York, and continued studies in painting under Hans Hofmann through 1937. During this year she exhibited her work in the first exhibition of the American Abstract Artists group at the Riverside Museum in New York. She matriculated at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1940 and married Charles Eames the following year.
