'EAMES WORDS' at A+D
We recently visited the A+D Architecture and Design Museum in Los Angeles to view the exhibit EAMES WORDS, part of the Pacific Standard Time initiative celebrating Southern California art. Only one of the several galleries highlighting the work of Charles and Ray Eames, this show examines the relationships between well-known words and quotations of the husband and wife team and the everyday objects that inspired and informed their practice, philosophy and approach to design.
Charles and Ray Eames inspired us to appreciate the world by honoring 'the uncommon beauty of common things.' EAMES WORDS uses the words of Charles and Ray Eames to focus on the lesser-known aspects of their lives, revealing their appreciation of the value of humble objects and useful tools. Their insights about the simple pleasures of daily life are illustrated with objects and materials available during their lifetimes and contemporary examples from the world around us. AplusD.org
We'll let the words themselves tell the rest of the story... Enjoy!
For more Eames entertainment, visit the Pacific Standard time site for more details on the regional program and others throughout the area...
Thanks, and have a great weekend! Lauren + Jason
