pioneers of mid-century modernism

Barkcloth, mohair couches, and minty cream shampoo. Growing up in the 50's no doubt has influenced my design sense today. OMG...I even remember when plastic cups came out, probably Tupperware. LOVED Melmac. Ok...still do. This book got my mind to thinking about all the cool stuff back then that is now today's trendy.


Pioneers of Mid-Century Modernism

"Eventually everything connects-people, ideas, objects etc., the quality of the connections is the key to quality per se." by Charles Eames

"...everything hangs on something else." by Ray Eames

EAMES by Gloria Koenig

Koenig`s comprehensive title covers all aspects of the husband-and-wife duo`s illustrious career, from the earliest furniture experiments and molded plywood designs to the Case Study Houses to their work for Herman Miller and classic films like Powers of Ten."

In the back of "EAMES" you'll find a time line of accomplishments for both Charles Ormond Eames and Ray Kaiser. I highly recommend this book by Gloria Koenig for points of reference as well as really fun reading.
