Home sweet home

Jenn Ski is a graphic designer and artist with a passion for mid century modern art and design.

She has produced this lovely print featuring the classic Eames moulded plywood lounge chair. Designed in 1946, the chair was first introduced to the public at the Museum of Modern Art and was named the Best Design of the 20th century by Time magazine.

There is a great piece of footage of Charles and Ray Eames presenting this chair to an NBC audience in 1956 on YouTube – it’s a real 50s TV gem. As the presenter demonstrates, women were expected to know their place back then – firmly behind their man.

The print is is available from Jenn’s website and also from Etsy.
