Eames Lounge chair debut: It caused quite a flurry

1 Oct

Halloween is coming up. I’ve never really been one to dress up or celebrate but this year I thought living a little would probably be an ok experience. I’ve been researching a lil every day about the Eames duo, surprisingly there doesn’t seem to be very many photographs of them (anyone got the goods?). So I am hesitant. Not really sure if I could get the outfit right and all that. When I saw this video I starting to dig the idea of being Ray for a night a lot more. Check her out here dudes! She get’s all shy and you think ‘you were a part of design history?! You are shy too?!’ The humility she shows in this video makes me love the Eames’ designs ten times better.
On top of all that I think the host is pretty funny. She’s carrying on a conversation with Charles and is looking directly at the camera staying clear away from addressing Charles with anything else but words (when did television decide that was a dumb way to interview someone? The 90’s?). Charles, even though I could imagine that being terribly awkward, holds it down like a gentleman keeping eye contact during most of their conversation.
