Eames House: Ray & Charles Eames Need Your Help
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Eames Foundation
Website: http://www.eameshouse250.org

Eames Foundation recently launched a campaignto raise funds to save the Eames House, a landmark of mid-20th century modern architecture. 

“Our goal with this campaign is to raise $150,000 towards preserving and protecting the Eames house for the next 250 years,” said Eames Demetrios, Chairman of the Board of Eames Foundation. “Our partners have helped us create a handful of limited edition original prints to sell to help raise money for the cause.”

To help preserve the Eames House and own a piece of the Eames legacy, people can purchase these hand-numbered original prints for 75 dollars each. They are 100 percent original works inspired by the elegant geometry and understated simplicity of Eames designs. Only 500 of each limited edition print will be produced and all purchases are tax-deductible (though each donor should consult with their tax advisor).

For the campaign, Eames Foundation partnered with Herman Miller, a global creator of inspiring designs, inventive technologies, and strategic services to improve the human experience, andVitra, a furniture company dedicated to developing healthy, intelligent, inspiring and durable solutions for the office and home, to create the Authenticity Fund for this project. They are matching donations of 75 dollars for each print purchased.

The Eames House, close to 70-years-old, was one of roughly two-dozen homes “designed to express man’s life in the modern world,” and is now in need of renovation. The Eames Foundation also partnered with award-winning digital marketing agency, Nebo, to design the limited edition prints and website for the campaign.

“We loved partnering with the Eames Foundation to help preserve this iconic landmark,” said Adam Harrell, President at Nebo. “The work of Ray & Charles Eames had a huge influence on my design philosophy, and these prints allow any fan of modern design to own a part of that amazing legacy.”
