Last night, Smart Furniture studio hosted The Gifted Eye of Charles Eames, a traveling exhibition of Charles Eames’ personal photography, published by the Eames Office and commissioned by Herman Miller to celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth. We had a great turn out, many people showed up from Chattanooga and surrounding areas, even some from outside Tennessee. We were honored to have Herman Miller’s Senior Retail Sales Manager, Lisa Hubbs fly down for the event as well. We started the evening off with a question and answer session with Eames and Smart Furniture’s Director of Special Accounts, Karen Liwanpo. We live streamed the interview, as well as documented it on video. We will be blogging that soon.
The event opened up with wine and hors d’oeuvres, art, and good times. Eames shared a slide show presentation of art by his grandfather, Charles, and shared a few fond memories of his grandparents.
Thanks to Eames Demetrios, Charles Eames’ gifted eye, Smart Furniture, Greenlife, and all who came out. We had a great time!
