Genius

You know who are cool? Charles and Ray Eames, that’s who. Designers, architects, artists, photographers,  researchers—

they were one awesome couple.

You can watch a video of the making of their iconic fiberglass chair (if the Eames’ estate hasn’t yet pulled it down—

better look sooner rather than later), or you can buy a whole set of their movies (though I’m not sure they are all as good as, say, Powers of Tendid you know there’s a Powers of Ten Day? October 10th, of course.)

They made toys, movies, chairs… all kinds of cool stuff. Have a look.

 

So I’m off to Pittsburgh tomorrow! Expect a full report next week.
