An interesting if not a little bit quirky film from 1972 around the famous interview with Charles Eames for the show Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Palais de Louvre in 1972.
I’m looking forward to seeing this documentary. LA Times recently gave it a positive review…. Anyone seen it yet, or have a review?
Here are some links mentioned in Tricia Gilson and my presentation, Use, Degradation, and Patina: A Case Study of Eames Furniture at the Miller House and Garden, at Future Talks 011, in Munich, Germany.
The presentation was given at Die Neu Sammlung on October 27, 2011. (The RAR pictured above is in the collection of this museum.)
Before this presentation, Tricia and I interviewed Eames expert, Daniel Ostroff, on Art21’s Blog in a two-part series: Following the Eames Legacy, a Discussion with Daniel Ostroff

Along with lots of background info on the new website EamesDesigns.com.
It’s broken up into two posts:
