Atomic Coat Rack

This instantly recognisable coat rack is a truly iconic design statement that would fit into any home. Known as The Cocktail Cherry, this design had a mass appeal and people bought it in huge numbers. Reproductions are still being produced today, however this is an original in great condition.

These racks were common place in UK homes in the 50s and 60s as people were hungry for modern design. Inspired by models of atoms and molecules, this coat rack reflected the widespread fascination for science and what science could do for the new society.

The coat rack is in great condition but does show signs of use. The wooden balls show wear as would be expected of an original piece. The wire frame is clean and tidy, making it ideal for use in a modern contemporary home or a retro hallway.
