VIVA: Preserving the Eames Dream

Preserving the Eames Dream

The grandson of the design world's most influential husband-and-wife team talks about the joy and responsibility of keeping their design legacy alive
By Melinda Williams

When his university professor pulled up a slide of the now-iconic Eames House in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles, during a class, Eames Demetrios recognised it with surprise.
“Hey, that’s my grandparents’ house!” he told his professor. Until that point, it hadn’t occurred to him that the home Charles and Ray Eames designed for themselves was the kind of international icon that would be taught to his fellow students.

Arclinea at Eurocucina 2016  

As part of Eurocucina 2016 in Milan, Arclinea celebrated its 90th year,
presenting a new project by Antonio Citterio - Principia

Function and Ritual motivate the design of Principia, highlighting natural materials, innovative production technologies and artisan detailing. The concept of the Kitchen as the heart of the home is revisited becoming the main driver for interiors. Function, purpose of work and shared experiences combined, form the model of Principia. A connected, coordinated, beautifully crafted and functional kitchen concept.

Principia merges an antique-look-rough wood with an innovative stainless steel finish. The new development of technological PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) is embedded throughout the design. To find out more click here.

Origins of the Future  - 
Cassina's New 2016 Collection more

​LC Collection 50th Anniversary 

Cassina celebrates the 50th anniversary of the LC collection - 1965-2015: a golden anniversary for Italian manufacturer and the masters of 20th Century design. 

2015 is an important year to celebrate one of the most significant collections of contemporary design. In 1964, while Le Corbusier and the co-creators were around, Cassina signed the contract to start producing the first four models by Le Corbusier, Jeanneret and Perriand. By choosing Cassina Le Corbusier demonstrated great international recognition of the Italian company's industrial know-how.

Over the years Cassina has developed the LC Collection adding models by the three and other projects that Le Corbusier worked on alone once he had reached full artistic maturity. 

Cassina is the only authorised company to produce designs by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand, working in close collaboration with the Le Corbusier Foundation and the heirs of the co-creators. It is vital to fight against imitations and protect the culture of design in order to sustain innovation and quality. more
