The Design Genius of Charles and Ray Eames


You might have missed this TED talk by Eames Demetrios, the grandson of Charles and Ray Eames.
Eames shares at TED a number of wonderful images and short clips that allows us insights into the minds of his grandparents, especially his grandfather Charles. What I found astonishing was that Charles never stopped designing, even in letters to his children. Another interesting thing to note was how the multidisciplinary nature of his design practice, which spanned from movies to architecture, cross-pollinated his design work in many wide and wonderful ways.
Hat tip to Dave from TEDxSingapore. By the way, if you are in Singapore this weekend, Eames Demetrios will be in town at the local TEDx. Check it out here.
