Burnt Out Stool by Kaspar Hamacher

October 21st, 2012



Kaspar Hamacher created these wonderful burnt out stools by setting smaller chunks of wood already on fire, on top of the cut stump.

Charles and Ray Eames Living Room Exhibit

March 6th, 2012



California Design, 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way, an exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), pulled together pieces of great design which included Charles & Ray Eames’s living room from their 1949 Case Study house. The museum moved all of the objects from the living room to the exhibit where they were set up.

If you haven’t seen the documentary “Eames: The Architect and The Painter” you definitely should. There are more views of the house and insights into the lives of Charles and Ray. Also, catch more images of the original house and exhibit after the break.

The form of this modern looking lounge chair / bed is quite interesting. Though it was built for recently, it seems that there has to be a retro-futuristic connection with the design. Regardless this is on my want list.
