shameless work promotion

Charles and Ray Eames applied their singularly consistent vision to more than classic furniture. Connecting art and design, the Eameses made over 100 short films ranging from 1–30 minutes in length. There is a temptation, because the Eames furniture is so well known, to see the Eames films, exhibitions and other work as subsidiary, when in fact they are intimately related. All of Charles and Ray Eames' projects flow from the same design process, the same design philosophy, the same recognition of need.Join Design Within Reach, in conjunction with the Eames Foundation and Herman Miller for the Home®, as we celebrate the Eameses' film legacy. We'll be screening seven films at Studios across the country.

DWR Potrero Hill August 10, 7–9 pm with Eames Demetrios, grandson of Charles and Ray Eames, who will be giving a presentation.

(this is an event i've put together and if you can come, i'd be psyched.)
