Design to the Nth power: Essential Eames

“Any time one or more things are consciously put together in a way that they can accomplish something better than they could have accomplished individually, this is an act of design. Combining rye bread and swiss cheese is a great act of design. The value of the result, the sandwich, is not the value of rye bread plus cheese, but it is rye bread plus cheese raised to the Nth power.” This undated photograph of a table setting in the Eames House kitchen and excerpt of Charles Eames’ notes for the 1954 SFMOMA television program, Discovery, are reproduced from Essential Eames: Words & Pictures, one of our favorite Holiday Gift Books of 2017, and a new release this week.
