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

Comparison with other popular designs
Not to be confused in name with the Saturn coat stand by Barber and Osgerby. The Saturnus coat hooks and coat stand collection might be compared in stature 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.
