Pacific Standard Time: Indoor Ecologies

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

For all those familiar with Charles and Ray Eames, their astonishing contribution to design and their significant know-by-doing mentality, an opportunity to see the contents of the home they built together – constructed as part of the seminal Case Study House Program – is one not to be missed. The ultimate in live-work spaces, the house and its contents resonate with the Eames’ design disposition for honest use of materials, " universalising from the specific" and accommodation for change. For less place specific insight into the Eames, check out the new film, EAMES: The Architect and The Painter directed by Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey.
