Design Within Reach Sprouting Golden Wheat Field
Design Within Reach Sprouting Golden Wheat Field

Bonnie Edelmans latest series was born out of experimentation during a family vacation in Uruguay several years ago. While driving through the countryside, she mistakenly captured an out-of-focus image. In this digital age, she was tempted to erase her error immediately but held off for some reason. Weeks later, she came across the image again and fell in love with its abstract tranquil character and vibrant hues. Since then, shes captured others in a similar vein from shorelines, boats and airplanes, resulting in the aptly named Scapes (Land, Sea and Sky), her latest grand body of work. According to Edelman, embracing this unique style has given her a brand-new perspective on the world, allowing her to envision it in blurs of color rather than restrictive details. Sprouting Golden Wheat Field (2009), captured in Germany, is available in three sizes. This archival-quality chromogenic print is face-mounted on quarter-inch-thick Plexiglas, then beautifully finished with flame-polished edges and acid-free Sintra foam backing. Each piece is signed and numbered. Materials: Archival-quality chromogenic print; Plexiglas; Sintra foam backing. Measurements:Small: H 40" W 40" Medium: H 48" W 48" Large: H 60" W 60"

Design Within Reach Vitra Miniatures Collection: Eames Plywood Elephant
Design Within Reach Vitra Miniatures Collection: Eames Plywood Elephant

Charles and Ray Eames were fascinated by elephants. Many images of these gentle giants are found in Charles' photographic documentations of Indian culture and the circus world. The Eames Plywood Elephant (1945) is among the plywood pieces designed by the Eameses and one of the most difficult to produce. In the early 1940s, they successfully developed an innovative method for molding plywood into three-dimensional shapes, which they used to produce a wide range of furniture and sculptural objects. To render the Elephant, tight angles and compound curves require a sophisticated mastery of plywood technology. It was so complicated that the full-size Plywood Elephant never went into production. Only two prototypes were made, both of which were displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in 1945 and 1946. Today only one known model remains in the possession of the Eames family. Vitra Design Museum has reproduced the Plywood Elephant at a scale of 1:6. True to the original pieces in structure and materials, the miniatures are precision-crafted, making them a thoughtful gift for a furniture lover or design professional. Each miniature comes handsomely packaged in a wood box with an informational booklet. Made in Poland. Materials: Molded natural maple plywood. Measurements:H 5" W 2.75" D 2.75"

Design Within Reach Vitra Miniatures Collection: Castiglioni Mezzadro

Each handmade Vitra miniature is a classic in the history of furniture design reduced in size at a scale of 1:6. True to the original pieces in structure and materials, the miniatures are precision-crafted, making them a thoughtful gift for a furniture lover or design professional. On the occasion of the XIth Milan Triennial in 1957, Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni presented their first prototype for the Mezzadro. The stool went on show in its current form that same year in an interior setting displayed at the Colori e forme nella casa doggi exhibition in the Villa Olmo in Como. The designers used a common tractor seat for the springy metal seat, fastening it with a wing nut to the spring-based arched steel strip utilized in tractors to absorb the shock of uneven ground. They enhanced the stability of the cantilever structure by a wooden cross-strut that resembled the rungs of a wooden ladder. Each of these parts clearly embodies its task as a part of a functional whole. And what strikes the eye is the recourse to an artistic method exemplified by Marcel Duchamp's found objects or Pablo Picasso's assemblages. The Castiglionis considered a design successful only once they had managed to eliminate all the unnecessary components and an optimal formal expression had been found for this concentration on the essential. Each miniature comes handsomely packaged in a wood box with an informational booklet. Materials: Chrome-plated and lacquered steel; beech wood. Measurements:H 3.5" W 3.25" D 3.5"

Design Within Reach Eames Limited-Edition Prints
Design Within Reach Eames Limited-Edition Prints

Charles and Ray moved into their Pacific Palisades home, aka Case Study House No. 8, on Christmas Eve in 1949. For the rest of their lives, this was where they lived, worked and played, and today the interior remains very much as they left it. The Eames Foundation is taking serious efforts to conserve the property, and their work is very Eames-ish in its approach and brilliance. Next to a large tree, a small one grows, ready to take its place when the time comes. Monitoring devices – installed by Gettys architectural conservator, the same person who developed climate control for King Tuts tomb – are tracking the environmental conditions affecting the house. Perhaps most Eames-ish of all is the name: 250 Year Project. Rather than waiting for the house to be in crisis, the foundation is planning for future needs now. These tax-deductible limited-edition prints are original works inspired by Eames quotes or objects from the house itself. All proceeds will help support the conservation projects of the Eames Foundation. Each print is individually numbered. Made in U.S.A. Spiral: With their passion for the deep resonances between art and science, its no surprise that the beautiful spiral of a nautilus would command the attention of Charles and Ray. This image is recreated from one found in the Giant House of Cards designed by the Eameses in 1953, a set of which still exists inside the Eames House. Details: This classic Eames quote from the film Eames Contract Storage reflects a philosophy embedded in every example of work from the Eameses. It also exemplifies the Powers of Ten thinking they brought to so many of their projects. At first a bit terse, its actually an insightful reminder of what makes timeless design. Tops: At the end of watching their first film, Blacktop , on the TV show Stars of Jazz , Charles and Ray were startled when the host announced the show would air a new film from them next week. Rather than expressing indignation, in six days they shot and edited a three-minute film now known as Tops from the Stars of Jazz . Like many others, it was shot at the Eames House. The Need: Asked on film, To whom does design address itself? To the greatest number (the masses)? The specialists? The enlightened amateur? A privileged social class? Charles replied simply, To the need. One of the most concise expressions of design philosophy, the full quote serves as a perfect companion to those contemplating guiding principles. Materials: Offset-press print on premium paper. Measurements:H 12" W 18"
