Eames to the joy!

The Lounge chair and its ottoman, the Storage Unit, the Tandem Seating, the DAR, RAR, DKR chairs… there will soon be no more secrets about the methodology of Charles and Ray Eames, whose innovative and timeless work has changed the face of design. The Eames Institute for Infinite Curiosity opens its doors at the heart of their ranch, located in Petaluma, California. Behind this nonprofit organization is the designers’ curator and granddaughter, Llisa Demetrios, and Airbnb co-founder Joe Gebbia. Part gallery, part learning center, it aims to bring their creative process to anyone looking to solve today’s problems. The site, already rich with information, videos, and photographs, is a perfect showcase for the various facilities that will host heritage exhibitions, live events, and programming. The Eames’ personal collection of unpublished objects is also made available for the first time. A real goldmine!
