Through the eyes of Eames


With not one but two design festivals currently running in Melbourne, there's no shortage of interesting things to see or do in town at the moment.

Yesterday I hopped on the tram to Richmond to go and see The Gifted Eye Of Charles Eames.

This is a wonderful collections of Charles Eames' personal photography, collated for exhibition to celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth.

The show is running in the Living Edge furniture showroom, which means you get to wander amongst the furniture and design of Ray and Charles Eames whilst looking at the photos.

It's on till next Sunday and is well worth a look. Only downside was the lack of poster, catalogue or chance to buy a print.
