The Eames House in Pacific Palisades, California is approaching 70 (after a protracted design and building process, Charles and Ray moved in on Christmas Eve 1949) and the beloved landmark is need of some TLC. The Eames Foundation is ready to preserve the house as it existed when Charles and Ray lived and worked in it–plans call for not only conserving the house for the future but also celebrating the Eameses’ legacy and philosophy–but it’s going to need some help, and by help, we mean money.
The foundation recently launched a campaign to raise $150,000 toward preserving and protecting the Eames house for the next 250 years, with an incentive to donate in the form of hand-numbered original prints from Nebo (the interactive agency is also to thank for the campaign website). Each of the four Eames-inspired designs is available in a limited-edition of 500 prints. The prints are 75 tax-deductible dollars a piece, with all proceeds going to support projects of the Eames Foundation, and Herman Miller and Vitra are matching donations for each print purchased.
