How the Eames Lounge Chair is Made

Hat tip for this installment of Viewfinder goes to the sharp eyes at Co.Design who uncovered a practically pornographic look at how the fabled Eames Lounge Chair is made, by hand. Admittedly, the chair has become, at time, cliche and a modern design-snobbery status symbol, but as a stand-alone product it’s still an icon no matter which way you cut assemble it. The film reaffirms our sentiments. Suggestion: the video is soundtrack free. Consider playing Andare by Ludovico Einauidi in the background.

Viewfinder is a series of captivating photos taken by the GP crew, culled from the web, dug out of our archives, or submitted by readers. These photos may or may not pertain to our regularly scheduled posts. Enjoy.
