Classic Trays - Dot Pattern light
Charles & Ray Eames, 1947
The designers Alexander Girard and Charles and Ray Eames were leading figures in American design during the post-war era. While textile design was the primary focus of Girard's oeuvre, he was also admired for his work in the graphic arts as well as furniture, exhibition and interior design. The expansive oeuvre of Charles and Ray Eames not only encompasses product design, architecture, exhibition design and cinematography, but also includes a large number of graphic designs, most of which were created by Ray Eames. The Classic Trays, which are made of laminated plywood, come in assorted motifs created by Alexander Girard for various purposes and selected by Vitra in cooperation with the Girard family. The Dot Pattern was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1947 and later used on pillows, cushions, blankets and other objects.
