Herman Miller Introduces Eames Pride Hang-It-All in Celebration of LGBTQ+ Community
In celebration of Pride Month and the LGBTQ+ community, design manufacturer Herman Miller (NASDAQ:MLHR) will introduce a new edition of its iconic Eames Hang-It-All.
With the introduction of the Eames Hang-It-All in 1953, Charles and Ray Eames elevated the everyday coat rack into something inventive and fun. Over the years, the material and colorways offered have expanded with fidelity to the sophistication—and sense of play—of the original design.
The new Pride Hang-It-All includes painted wooden spheres arranged in a rainbow of color representing the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community. This rainbow orientation includes black and brown colors, first introduced in 2017 to represent the inclusion of LGBTQ+ people of color.
Herman Miller is donating $25 per Pride Hang-It-All sold to OutRight Action International, a global nonprofit organization that’s mission is to support human rights and fundamental freedoms for LGBTQ+ people everywhere. Herman Miller Cares, the company’s corporate foundation, is also a proud supporter of OutRight.
“We know that our business and world are enriched when all people are celebrated and free to be their full selves,” said Ben Watson, Chief Creative Officer at Herman Miller. “We are proud to support OutRight Action International as they share our commitment to LGBTQ+ advocacy around the globe."
The new edition of the Eames Hang-It-All was developed by the Herman Miller LGBTQ+ and WIN (Women) Inclusiveness Resource Teams, voluntary employee-led teams that work on business initiatives.
