You've sat in their chairs. You've watched their films. You've gawked at their house. But how did legendary designers Charles and Ray Eames actually work? What was their creative process? Where did all those ideas come from?
Those answers are found at Eames Words, the incredible show currently up at the A+D Museum which has just been extended until February 20. Within this "assemblage" of everyday objects ranging from a famous tumbleweed to a pastrami sandwich, you'll discover the Eameses sources of inspiration in "the uncommon beauty of common things." On Saturday, January 21, A+D is graciously offering de LaB members a free tour of the exhibition hosted by co-curator Andrew Byrom, who will guide us through the Eameses methodology as well as the unique exhibition design.
