@studiocatherine Not in the slightest! Our printers just require a little extra time.
Best known for their avant-garde furniture designs, beloved husband and wife duo Charles and Ray Eames were innovators of the post-war era.
Never tethered to just one facet of design, the renowned pair challenged traditional design values by creating modern pieces of architecture and furniture whilst working simultaneously across areas of industrial design, graphic design, fine art and film. For the two, being a designer was not merely an occupation, it was a way to view the world.
Eames: The Architect & The Painter explores the intertwined career trajectories of Charles and Ray over four decades of design residency at 901 Washington Boulevard, Venice Beach, California – a location which became affectionately known as The Eames Office and played home to the design of iconic brands Westinghouse, Bowing, Polaroid and IBM. In this documentary, film makers Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey capture the Eames philosophy of creative fulfillment which spanned 40 years through a unique collection of stories, interviews and images interspersed with narration by actor, James Franco.
Eames: The Architect and the Painter screens as part of the Long Play program at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) In Melbourne from July 1 – 17.
