This interactive Charles and Ray Eames retrospective is worth travelling for
NOV 2, 2017 | By Reecha Kulkarni
You could play with furniture, watch short films, pose by sculptures or browse through a collection of photographs at this immersive exhibition. Germany’s Vitra Design Museum Campus will be hosting “An Eames Celebration” to honour the 20th century designer duo, Charles and Ray Eames. The retrospective will feature four parallel exhibitions, to showcase the mixed bag of artwork the artists created over the years. Walls lined with photographs, drawings, textiles, graphic design and sculptures gather at the main building of the museum, only a few minutes away from a screening of a selection of their cinematic oeuvre. Let your kids loose at “Play Parade”, with toys, short films and objects from the toy collection to play with, or visit “Kazam!” and be astounded by the duo’s experimental furniture. Just in time for the 110th birthday of Charles Eames, this exhibition perfectly encapsulates the legendary artists.
