1796 white rocking chair

Last Friday at the Academy we had a lecture by Eames Demetrios. He is a charming man, a film maker and the grand son of designers Ray and Charles Eames. The presentation made me even more enthusiastic about them and their work. Personal pictures and stories, insights in Eames creative and family life, it added a whole new dimension to the ingenious objects they made.

“Take your pleasure seriously,” said Charles Eames. And it sums up one vein of his and Ray Eames’ work. Together, they created the House of Cards, in 1952.

“The toys are not as innocent as they appear.”

They said that the most important thing is to be a good host and to treat the person who will use your design as a guest.

Here is a drawing with everything that is going on at the same time in a house.

“Beyond the age of information is the age of choices.”

Stamps with Eames’ work.

One of them- a Christmas card with their picture they sent to friends.
