Student Spotlight: Eames Skincare

by First name Last name on 09/07/2011 | 2 Minute Read

"The Eames Office is dedicated to communicating, preserving and extending the work of Charles and Ray Eames. They feel that all three of those dimensions are important to keeping the office useful and vital. Charles and Ray’s work was the result of a way of looking at the world—a design philosophy and process that is worth sharing in many different dimensions. They also believe that creating wholly new works is as consistent with that philosophy as restoring and distributing classic ones."

 

"Overall I wanted to capture the Essence of Eames and their design philosophy, fun, and energy. As my exploration continued, my concept started to revolve around their Plywood Molded Elephant, patterns, and other modern toys.  As result from my research, I found the elephant to be the most unique, playful, and universally fun. It speaks to a broad audience of all ages, sexual orientation, or whether or not they know about Charles and Ray Eames. This is skincare that can be left on the counter and gives that sense of sophisticated personified fun that Eames designs are known for."Thank you to Anh Pham a student at The Academy of Art for submitting this to us.
