Word & Play: The Eames Approach
Work & Play: The Eames Approach
January 17-March 8, 2015 | Opening Reception Saturday January 24, 2015, 4 to 7pm “Toys are not really as innocent as they look. Toys and games are the preludes to serious ideas.” -Charles Eames
The twentieth century design duo of Charles and Ray Eames approached their craft through play and experimentation that was known to them as work. Their process of problem solving was inquisitive and often fun, resulting in projects that strayed from their original design goal to toys, films, and even museum exhibitions. In this exhibit, we take a look at three generations of Eames artist-designers and how play is work.
