Building a modernist tradition

January 6, 2011

Today starts spring classes down here in Starkville.  I am going to talk about the Eames in furniture class but I should use the same lecture in Construction class. tracking the evolution of the Eames chair work means watching Charles Eames push the boundaries of structural integrity…see the Bikini chair, even where looking at the upholstery he is saying to himself “where do I need material and where do I not”-economy of means.  P.S. I am showing the adorable video at the bottom of the link in class.
