Charles and Ray Eames on a Volocette, 1948
The Eames’ studio in 901 Washington Boulevard has often been described as a circus, where visitors walked into an arena full of surprises. One of these unplanned moments triggered this photo. While working on the set of one of their many photo shoots in 1948, a friend rode by on his Velocette. Charles and Ray hopped on the motorcycle, and someone snapped a shot. A spontaneous gesture, yet no isolated instance: The Eameses used photography to teach people to see the beauty inherent in everyday objects, from furniture pieces and folk art to motorcycles. This iconic image not only represents the creative and spontaneous characters of Charles and Ray Eames, but also expresses their approach to the design profession, which was: “to take pleasure seriously”.
