Please take a look what my google alert sent me Saturday.

Eames: Furniture 1941-1978 by Brigitte Fitoussi

Chair 1

Product Description

Pioneers of the 1950s and of the optimistic American way of life, Charles and Ray Eames created the greatest modern furniture "classics" between 1941 and 1978. They designed more than 20 chair models, mostly unique pieces, and developed know-how in the art of sitting. The Plywood Chairs LCW and DCW (1946), the Aluminum Group (1958) and the Lounge Chair (1956) have become true symbols of design that remain references today. Still produced, they inspire the admiration of new generations to convey the generous social ideal of their designers.

  1. What a sleek design for a chair. It looks so modern.

  2. You're so right, Beverly. Modern and simple with straight our Eames ;o)

  3. Very cute!
    Not surprised about the name a bit!

  4. That's funny...almost like the "Goren Bridge" book that's out there. How was your trip to NYC?

  5. @Nantz: I wasn't in NYC, yet. Finally mid of September I'll be there (excited screaming)...and I'll fly back to Berlin two days before the Woodstock Festival...I knew that something like this would happen.
