Dazzling Cubed! The World of Charles and Ray Eames



Happy New Year Everyone!


I just had the amazing experience of a full Eames immersion at The Oakland Museum of California.


How to describe it? Awe-inspiring.

Tactile meets mechanical mid-century. Beyond beautiful. Playful and brilliant.


The 200+ piece exhibit is beyond expansive and focusses also on the couples’ shared philosophy and designs from the get go.


There are films to watch, sketches to ponder, letters, graphic and 3-D designs to delve into, so give yourself plenty of time...and also air and coffee breaks...at the museum cafe and sculpture gardens.


You’ll leave seeing everything after as art: all pattern and perfect or profound compositions.


Catch it soon. before it's three-year international tour ends: February 18, 2019!


Bart and airport close for out-of-towners:

SFO and OAK.
