Ray And Charles Eames: Powers Of Ten

My favorite furniture designers by far are Ray and Charles Eames. Back in the 50s, in addition to revolutionizing the use of molded plywood in furniture, they made a few eye-popping films high-concept films, including this classic, Powers Of Ten. Go ahead--be a high-school science geek all over again.





The score was written by none other than Elmer Bernstein (no relation to Leonard).

In other news, the pressure's on here for my album! I'm meeting with my conductor in a few weeks: Maestro Lucas Richman, director of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, former pupil of Leonard Bernstein and former teacher of none other than yours truly. I have to have the scores for the recording session ready by then. Yikes!

Charles Eames developed an early interest in architecture and engineering, interests he later pursued by working in, then starting, an architectural company. He was given a fellowship to Cranbrook Academy where he soon became head of their design department. chairs were diverse enough to suit any scenario and will be handed down from generation to generation. They were suitable as a primary chair for a teenager moving out of home and also great to be handed down from parents to children after a few years of use due to their top quality workmanship. Charles Eames may not be with us but his legacy of eagerness to make the planet a far better place will survive within the furniture and other works he has designed and produced for people to admire and use for several, a few years to return. visit : Cheap Essay Writing Service
