after punxsutawney phil saw his shadow this morning, i was feeling a little sad about 6 more weeks of winter. but then i received an email from house industries announcing their drawing for a sunset tour of the eames house in the pacific palisades, hosted by eames demetrios and lucia atwood, grandson and granddaughter of charles and ray eames.
from the announcement:
As part of a celebration of our release of the Eames Century Modern font collection, House Industries will be drawing three names to join us for this exclusive look into the inner sanctum of one of 20th century’s greatest design teams. Sitting high atop the Pacific Palisades and overlooking Santa Monica and the Pacific Ocean, the Eames House was built in 1949 as number 8 in the series of Case Study Houses and is still recognized as a revolutionary use of space and materials. Interior tours of the Eames house and studio are normally only available to members of the Eames foundation.
If you wish to participate in this drawing, please fill our catalog form and type the words EAMES HOUSE into the COMMENTS box.
the drawing will be held for 3 lucky winners on 19 february – but even if i don’t win, i’ll receive a lovely house industries catalog and free fonts! so that should keep my modern design heart warm for 6 more weeks of winter!
