Ilovedust Eames DCW chairs project

Ilovedust eames

Here's an interesting project from Ilovedust involving the ever-appealing Eames DCW chairs. The top image shows a bespoke customisation they've done of a pair of the chairs. Ilovedust have taken an 1956 TV interview between Arlene Francis and Ray and Charles Eames as their inspiration, pulling out key words and statements. These have been worked up into graphics shaped by fashionable typography and imagery from the 1950s and then hand applied to the surface of the chairs. 

For something that can be bought, the same graphics have been used to produce a limited run of faux suede cushions, available in either blue or green and costing £33 through Click for Art. Finally, there is also a print available: more details of that on the Ilovedust blog.
