3. "Eames Designs: The Guest Host Relationship , at A + D Museum, Oct 1 - January 16, 2012 " Eames Designs : The Guest Host Relationship" This exhibit uses Eames words to focus on the lesser-known aspects of their lives, revealing their appreciation of the value of humble objects and useful tools. Their insights about the simple pleasures of daily life will be illustrated with objects and materials available during their lifetimes and contemporary examples from the world around us. From tumbleweed to strawberries, a bolt of cloth to a keg of nails, to elephants in India and the bread of Scandinavia, the whole world was their canvas." (text taken from A + D site)
