What Makes an Original Design?

ikonhouse Design Talk with Eames Demetrios
Wednesday, 15 November, 2017, 7:00 pm

"The details are not the details. They make the product."
Charles Eames

Together with the manufacturer, designers dedicate their time, expertise and craftsmanship to the development and launch of new products, conceiving objects that are more than mere things. Integral aspects include the aesthetic, the unique user experience, sustainability and longevity, which enhance the appearance and value of the products as they age. The beauty of an original is that it does not simply get older – it becomes more beautiful.

Join Eames Demetrios as he discusses 'What makes an original design?'

Eames Demetrios wears many hats but is best known for his work as Director of the Eames Office, spearheading the successful rediscovery of the work of his grandparents, Charles & Ray Eames, for new generations.
