The Eames House

Case Study House No. 8 was designed and built by Charles and Ray Eames as part of the Case Study House Program in the 1940’s. The aim of these 36 Case Study prototype homes was to come up with plans for post-war homes that were easy and cheap to build. Located in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles, the Eames house is a simple structure using the limited materials available at the time. A home designed for work and family life; it has plenty of light, a modern feel, modular furnishings that can be moved around (even the plants are on a platform with wheels) so the whole room can be reconfigured at any time. Objects collected by the Eames over the years are displayed and incorporated throughout. Just below center in this photograph of the Eames living room is a pile of three pillows which inspired my #2293 floor pillows.

San Mateo Eichler Home Tour

Last weekend some of my pieces found new homes, picked up at the San Mateo Highlands Eichler Home Tour http://eichlerhometour.org/. Big thanks to amazing Ami who helped me out once again. We met lots of interesting people and toured some beautiful homes. Needless to say I left feeling super inspired!

 

 

 

project #2293

March 13th – March 18th 2017

A site-specific exhibition of suburban stories in curious times.

Lucinda Newton-Dunn, Martha Sakellariou and Christina Vervitsioti.

Three Royal College of Art artists and friends reconnect in Palo Alto, California after two decades living in different parts of the world. Using a suburban home as their source of inspiration, themes are explored around suburban life, architecture, domesticity and identity. This exhibition is designed to elicit visual stories about the house in which it is shown, the life of its inhabitants, its patterns and forms as seen from three different angles.
