The Tale of Two EamesAuthor:Lindsey Shook
The story of the two most successful chairs every produced – coincidentally, from the same small workshop in Venice, California – will be on display this October. “Eames: 2 Chairs, 2 Records of the Design Process” will be added to the Pacific Standard Time initiative, a collaboration of more than 60 SoCal cultural institutions telling the story of the birth of the Los Angeles art scene.
Opening at Los Angeles’ A+D Museum, the exhibit highlights the design process of Charles and Ray Eames, and examines the relevance of their work to design today. The main focus of the exhibit is the Eames Molded Plastic Chair and the Eames Aluminum Group Chair. Rare models, vintage furniture, interviews, films and the designers’ own words provide compelling comparisons and contrasts between the two pieces that were produced in 1949 and 1958.
A+D Museum is located at 6032 Wilshire Blvd., L.A. | 323-932-9393 | aplusd.org
