The Eames Studio
About six months ago I watched a documentary on PBS about the designers Charles and Ray Eames. They were husband and wife American designers who made significant historical contributions to the development of modern architecture and furniture. Among their most well-known designs is the Eames Lounge Chair. They also worked in the fields of industrial and graphic design, exhibition design, fine art and film. I was stunned to learn that their studio, which was in operation for more than forty years, is on Washington Boulevard, in Venice, California! So I went hunting for it this trip, and found it. Unfortunately, when I visited it several times, there were cars parked in front. I liked the light on the building at this time of day, so I had to live with the cars in the photograph. The building was a garage before it was a studio, and it was recently for sale, and it was purchased by someone.
