Wonderful four page article from Interiors (April 1952) – first sighting of the Eames DKR with Ray's famous wooden folk bird perched on the rods. Even better second spread is two colour plan view of seat fixing and wire rod base, with a DAW base drawing too.
From the text by Olga Gueft: 'There can now be no doubt that Eames, who never doctored the curve of a toaster nor barbered a chrome bumper, is one of our most genuinely industrial designers. Both in architecture and furniture design his aim is to solve the problem with industrial methods — and industrial economies.'
To think these iconic designs retailed from $25 when launched. Estupendo.
