Table Runner - Sea Things

Charles & Ray Eames, 1945
The expansive oeuvre of Charles and Ray Eames includes a large number of graphic designs, most of which were created by Ray Eames. Sea Things is a pattern she created in 1945. It shows a lovingly designed undersea world full of starfish, jellyfish, crustaceans, seaweed and other whimsical creatures – they frolic about on the Table Runner in a fresh sea-blue colour, creating a maritime touch.

Table Runner
While textile design was the primary focus of Alexander Girard's oeuvre, he was also admired for his work in the areas of furniture design, graphics, exhibitions and interior architecture. Girard brought a sensuous playfulness to twentieth-century design that had been absent from the austere aesthetic of classic modernism. For the Table Runner, Vitra collaborated with the Girard family to select the textile design Geometric E, developed by Alexander Girard in 1971.
