I think most design minded people hold a special regard for any Eames creation, but their Shell Chair was definitely one of the most iconic of the bunch. Watching this video is an amazing experience, getting to see every nook and cranny of how these amazing chairs are constructed. What I really love about this video is how there isn’t one word spoken in the whole thing, there’s only the frantic jazz music of Buddy Collette to guide you through the process. Beautiful isn’t strong enough of a word for this video.
Over the weekend I made a stop at the Marc by Marc Jacobs store, one of my favorite things to do because they not only have amazing clothes, they also have items that are amazingly affordable, so I was able to pick myself up a tie for $35 and a yellow stinky rat tee for $18. Nice, right? So I came across this clip from a documentary on Marc which gives a small peak behind the scenes of the business process of both Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton. It’s fun to see his studio, his affection and need for his assistant Joseph, and all of the meetings he has trying to map out the future.
