Here we have the second installment of our trip to the “Ray Eames In The Spotlight” exhibit, to which team Pro-Ject made a visit last week. Ray Eames was the landmark artist and designer who (along with her husband Charles Eames) created some of this century’s most memorable and recognized modern architecture and furniture. In addition, they produced (as these pictures show) a slew of other products like textiles, apparel, model figures and more.

The Eames legacy is #Influence at its finest.

The exhibit is on display until May 4th. More info here.

This week, DJ Synapse of The Pro-Ject Team made a trip to the “Ray Eames In The Spotlight” exhibit at The Art Center College For Design in Pasadena, Ca.

Ray Eames (along with her husband Charles) could certainly be seen as one of the twentieth century’s most varied and innovative designers. Together, Ray and Charles made so many things, not limited to films, apparel, paintings, toys, textiles, photographs, and of course home furnishings. Remember “The Eames Chair”?


Charles and Ray Eames have long since passed, but The Eames legacy lives on through The Eames House  (a house that the couple built in California’s Pacific Palisades), considered a landmark of 20th century architecture, and The Eames Office, their business still located in Venice, CA.

The amount of work that was included in this exhibit simply will not fit into one post. With that said, this is the first installment in our Pro-Ject feature on the work of Ray Eames.

The exhibit is on display until May 4th. More info here.
