Eames Words

Friends of Hello at the A+D Museum in Los Angeles recently installed “Eames Words,” an exhibition where the ideas of Charles and Ray Eames triumph their better-known creations.

Part of the Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time, the show pays homage to the design duo’s appreciation of humble objects through an “informal assemblage” of quotes, phrases and actual items, like the Jeep.
