Today for Motivational Monday is all about Ray Eames.
Ray Eames was the other half of the legendary Modern furniture makers. Clean curves and new forms, Charles and Ray Eames were leading designers in modern design. They fell in love because of a chair, and together in their talents, they created much more than a furniture company. Ray was a painter who rarely painted. Charles was an architecture student who dropped out and never received his license. They married and moved to Los Angeles where they opened a design office. Their aim was to utilize new material and technology so that everyday objects can be produced in high quality at reasonable cost. Their mission was a success. Not only were they leading furniture designers, they also produced toys, films, photographs, textiles, exhibition, architecture…
Charles was the face of the company. He was more charismatic in the public eye, but behind it all was an energetic, witty, little woman who was equal partner in their projects. She brought the color to the company. She employed her graphic design skills to create number of textile design. Bold, bright, abstract, repetitive. Rays exceptional visual memory allowed her to create a visual stimulating color palette for Eames furniture.
Ray was an extraordinary lady who did not shy away from her ambitions and embraced color.
