Ice Cube // Eames

 Tomorrow afternoon, I’m attending a book signing for “An Eames Primer” at one of my favorite home furnishing stores, Niche.  The book was written by Eames Demetrious, grandson of the iconic Charles and Ray Eames.  Eames-Primer-Book-Rizzoli-2013-01 I have been a long time Eames fan, and must confess that I have watched the PBS American Masters documentary “Charles and Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter” four times.  It is truly fascinating and inspiring.  I love learning how dependent Charles was on Ray, yet he received the majority of the credit for their work.  It was such a different time for women in their day.  If you ever have 85 minuets to spare go HERE to watch.  You will love it.

Another video I love is rapper Ice Cube celebrating the Eames.  I’m a HUGE fan of Ice Cube  and love how this video mixes some of my favorite things:

Hip Hop + LA + Design = Bad Ass.

  3. I haven’t heard of the movie either but I’ll be looking for it on PBS from now on! I hate watching movies on my computer but I just may hit this one this weekend.

    Oh–and that Ice Cube video? Incredible. As a Cali girl, Cube is my man. Loved that, thanks for sharing.
