The Eames' Mid-Century Modern Legacy
There have been a number of high-profile projects and designs in recent years that highlight the benefits of mass production, with regard to modular construction, such as pre-fab homes and shipping container structures. The challenge of making good design accessible to as many individuals and communities as possible is an intriguing one, and there are many historical figures to look to with regard to this approach to creative and functional design.
Specifically, Charles and Ray Eames saw the potential for social change through modern design, and their iconic furniture is as ubiquitous today as it was in the 1940's when they originally pioneered the concept of mass-produced products, including molded chairs and chaises, as well as plywood innovations.
