Speaking of Eames…
Just a couple days after House Industries had their Eames Century Modern font Wright announced their Charles & Ray Eames auction taking place on April 8th. Click here to go straight to the auction site or just look after the jump for an overview.
The LCW was made 60 years ago and was referred to as the most famous chair of the century. Mr Lucky’s cafe in the Hard Rock in Vegas used to be filled with these. Who knows if they were authentic or not but they were super comfortable and they looked amazing. I rolled through a few days after they got rid of them and went ninja / sneaking into trade shows style to find the stash to bring a few home with no luck.
Classic. Sure, they look a bit like the chairs you sat in at school but an infinite amount cooler. and they’re worth a million times more. and they get extra points for the label with the awesome Herman Miller logo placed appropriately in the center along the edge, not all wonky and angled under the mounts or something stupid.
