Funky Retro Design

"Funky" is a word that goes well with "retro". Funky means cool. Funky means colourful.

The funky retro design of the Saturnus collection (see below) is one of the most successful and popular coat rack and hat holder designs for the home or office of the 20th Century.

Comparison with other popular designs

Not to be confused with the Saturn coat stand by Barber and Osgerby. The Saturnus coat hooks and coat stand collection can be compared with the classic victorian style bentwood coat stand - originally designed by Michael Thonet in the late 1800's. Numerous modern designs based on the classic multi-colour 'spinning satellites' design have been attempted. Below is a selection of links to online retailers of Saturnus coat hooks.

Charles and Ray Eames

The Saturnus coat hook was designed by Charles and Ray Eames (an American industrial and furniture designer) in the late 1950's - better known for his Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman, these designs have become timeless classics. The designs themselves - inspired by the planet Saturn and it's moons - are ingenious to say the least. More Eames designs
