Mark Your Calendar: A Celebration of Eva Zeisel

Best known for her sensuous ceramics, industrial designer Eva Zeisel died late last year, but her legacy lives on and will be celebrated tomorrow–which would have been her 106th birthday. A Public Space and PEN American Center are teaming up to present “Eva Zeisel: The Life of a Remarkable Woman,” a tribute to the life and work of the self-described “maker of things” that begins tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. at New York’s Strand Bookstore. Friends and admirers of her work, including the writer and historian Istvan Deak and art historian Karen Kettering, will discuss Zeisel’s remarkable achievements. The event will also include a reading of her prison memoir (in which she describes her sixteen-month imprisonment, mostly in solitary confinement, in Russia, after being caught in early Stalinist purges and accused of plotting to kill Stalin), and audio recordings from the e-book Eva Zeisel: A Soviet Prison Memoir. Your ticket ($12) includes a copy of A Public Space Issue 14, in which the prison memoir appears in full–along with official transcripts of interrogations, and photographs from those years.

UnBeige Looks Back: The Year In Realizing, Damn, Design Increases Longevity

Sure, every industry probably has their share of centenarians. But what is it about design that keeps our ranks forever young? Not only do they keep living, they keep working! Eva Zeisel, still out there signing books, edged past 101 in November, and Oscar Niemeyer hit the big one-zero-zero this month in the midst of ongoing projects.

Which makes Julius Shulman a teenager at 97.

UnBeige is counting down our biggest stories of 2007, all day, right here.

Eva Zeisel Still Out There Signing Books At 100

Architectural Digest’s Home Show storms NY next weekend with plenty of design, decor and delight packed into March 9, 10 and 11. But here’s one don’t-miss-it moment that we’d recommend dropping everything for if you’re anywhere near the tri-state area:

On Friday, March 9 at 3:00 p.m., legendary designer Eva Zeisel, who celebrated her 100th birthday this November, will sign copies of Eva Zeisel On Design: The Magic Language of Things and Eva Zeisel: Compact Design Portfolio by Lucie Young.

Just the fact that she can sign her own name at 100 is something we’d line up to see in person. Give her a big kiss for us.
