Eames: The Artist and the Painter

I discovered the Herman Miller web site not so long ago. It is a site about office ergonomy in the first place, but it is also a unique collection of interesting material about designers, architecture and lots of stuff that appeals to me, even after a very short night. (Thank you VTM & Het Laatste Nieuws, best Gouden Schoen party in years.) This morning (or was it noon?) the Herman Miller newsletter announced that the Eames documentary that aired last month on PBS was now available online. Ray and Charles Eames wrote history, or rather fabricated historical furniture. I'm sure everyone knows at least one object created by them. The documentary is just what I needed to revitalize my inspirational muscles. But... I will have to be patient... Right now only available in the US... Enjoy it here. PBS... please... open it up to the rest of the world... For now we'll have to do with the notes on the film by Eames Demetrios, their grandson and with his TED talk below. Thank you TED :-)
