Constructing Eames

I heart handmade. There, I said it. Well, not a big surprise really after appearing on the Etsy blog a few months back. So, on my usual browse of the Etsy blog for their delicious imagery and well-researched stories I stumbled across a story on ‘Assembling the Eames Lounge Chair‘.

I am a bit of a design-snob and often disregard the Eames lounge chair as overexposed. It has almost made a mockery of itself. But watching this video made me remember everything I thought when I first saw one and sat in it. The quality is perfect and rivals most of its competition, standing the true test of good design…time!
