Design Within Reach Eames House Bird
Design Within Reach Eames House Bird

The Eames House Bird rose to stardom in the 1950s when Charles and Ray Eames pulled it from their own living room and positioned it with a group of Eames® DKR chairs for a poster. Also appearing in several of the Eameses photographs, the masterfully simplistic black bird (circa 1910) with its tapered beak and sleek tail was evidently one of their most prized objects of Appalachian folk art. In cooperation with the Eames family, Vitra used 3-D scans of the original to create the solid alder wood reproduction. Made in Germany. This item ships directly from Vitra via Standard Service. Delivery to Canada currently unavailable. Materials: Solid alder; black lacquer finish; steel wire. Measurements:H 11" W 3.5" D 10.75"

Design Within Reach Eames Limited-Edition Prints
Design Within Reach Eames Limited-Edition Prints

Charles and Ray moved into their Pacific Palisades home, aka Case Study House No. 8, on Christmas Eve in 1949. For the rest of their lives, this was where they lived, worked and played, and today the interior remains very much as they left it. The Eames Foundation is taking serious efforts to conserve the property, and their work is very Eames-ish in its approach and brilliance. Next to a large tree, a small one grows, ready to take its place when the time comes. Monitoring devices – installed by Gettys architectural conservator, the same person who developed climate control for King Tuts tomb – are tracking the environmental conditions affecting the house. Perhaps most Eames-ish of all is the name: 250 Year Project. Rather than waiting for the house to be in crisis, the foundation is planning for future needs now. These tax-deductible limited-edition prints are original works inspired by Eames quotes or objects from the house itself. All proceeds will help support the conservation projects of the Eames Foundation. Each print is individually numbered. Made in U.S.A. Spiral: With their passion for the deep resonances between art and science, its no surprise that the beautiful spiral of a nautilus would command the attention of Charles and Ray. This image is recreated from one found in the Giant House of Cards designed by the Eameses in 1953, a set of which still exists inside the Eames House. Details: This classic Eames quote from the film Eames Contract Storage reflects a philosophy embedded in every example of work from the Eameses. It also exemplifies the Powers of Ten thinking they brought to so many of their projects. At first a bit terse, its actually an insightful reminder of what makes timeless design. Tops: At the end of watching their first film, Blacktop , on the TV show Stars of Jazz , Charles and Ray were startled when the host announced the show would air a new film from them next week. Rather than expressing indignation, in six days they shot and edited a three-minute film now known as Tops from the Stars of Jazz . Like many others, it was shot at the Eames House. The Need: Asked on film, To whom does design address itself? To the greatest number (the masses)? The specialists? The enlightened amateur? A privileged social class? Charles replied simply, To the need. One of the most concise expressions of design philosophy, the full quote serves as a perfect companion to those contemplating guiding principles. Materials: Offset-press print on premium paper. Measurements:H 12" W 18"

Design Within Reach Ekko Standing Circles Mobile
Design Within Reach Ekko Standing Circles Mobile

DWR Exclusive Matthew Richards was pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering when he was inspired by the work of Alexander Calder (also a mechanical engineer) and began making mobiles (2009). Mobile-making started as a hobby for him, but it wasnt long before the powerful combination of his art and technical background led him to fashion a new career out of it – and a distinguished one at that. Richards mobiles were specially commissioned and installed on the movie set of Oceans Thirteen , as well as at Harpo Studios and Bristol-Myers Squibb. Creating these kinetic works of art satisfies both sides of Richards personality: artistic and technical. Made by hand in Oregon, his mobiles move freely with the slightest breeze or vibration. Best suited for indoor use. Keep away from children. Assembly required. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Powder-coated steel base; stainless steel rods; enamel-painted steel shapes.

Design Within Reach Marrakech Sunset
Design Within Reach Marrakech Sunset

Bonnie Edelmans latest series was born out of experimentation during a family vacation in Uruguay several years ago. While driving through the countryside, she mistakenly captured an out-of-focus image. In this digital age, she was tempted to erase her error immediately but held off for some reason. Weeks later, she came across the image again and fell in love with its abstract tranquil character and vibrant hues. Since then, shes captured others in a similar vein from shorelines, boats and airplanes, resulting in the aptly named Scapes (Land, Sea and Sky), her latest grand body of work. According to Edelman, embracing this unique style has given her a brand-new perspective on the world, allowing her to envision it in blurs of color rather than restrictive details. Marrakech Sunset (2012), captured in Morocco, is available in three sizes. This archival-quality chromogenic print is face-mounted on quarter-inch-thick Plexiglas, then beautifully finished with flame-polished edges and acid-free Sintra foam backing. Each piece is signed and numbered. Materials: Archival-quality chromogenic print; Plexiglas; Sintra foam backing. Measurements:Small: H 40" W 30" Medium: H 60" W 45" Large: H 72" W 48"
