Eames House / Herman Miller X Hay Picnic
I went to a picnic at the Eames House this past weekend. It was a preview of a collaboration between Herman Miller and Hay. They call it a "thoughtfully reimagined" line "of eight classic Eames designs for a new generation." Just like Charles and Ray Eames, Rolf and Mette Hay are a married couple.
In addition to the new colors, drawn from Alexander Girard Jacob's Coat textile, the Hay designs also use new materials.
Like this glass top LTR. I'm a vintage guy so I'm generally not all that interested in new furniture. Especially if it's a reproduction of an older piece, authorized or not. I have nothing against new furniture, especially when it's done well and responsibly, like Herman Miller does. That all being said, this LTR in a heavy cast-glass is pretty interesting to me. I like the idea of being able to use an LTR outside.
