CHARLES EAMES

Charles-Eames-icone-du-design-organiqueFace: CASE STUDY
Body: EAMES OTTO-MAN
Arms: HANG-IT-ALL
Personality: CREATIVE GENIUS
Distinguishing Features: ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL DESIGNERS EVER
Attainability: DEAD. BUT WAS MARRIED FOR 37 YEARS

Despite the relative ubiquity of some of the Eames’ designs amongst the stylish denizens of the world, they are still the ultimate in aspirational furniture; and I’ll know I’ve made it when I can easily buy a Lounge chair and Ottoman for my Swedish log cabin. This man, who was devoted to his wife, design partner, muse and lover (Ray) for over thirty-five years until his death, was responsible for the most beautiful, simple, incredible, iconic products of the last hundred years. He was creatively brimming, and this kind of dedication to design was/is unbelievably sexy in my eyes. The relationship between he and Ray bore fruit in the form of a legacy of brilliance, and she died ten years to the day after he did. May they always be revered for their awe-inspiring contribution to the beauty of this world.
