smow Blog Design Calender: May 17th 1955 - Charles Eames Granted US Patent 2,708,476 for Furniture Frame Construction

...Saarinen and Eames (with Kaiser's hand) were awarded first prize in the category "Seating for a living room" with a collection which in addition to the "Conversation" armchair and "Relaxation" lounge chair which later became the Vitra Organic and Organic Highback chairs respectively, also featured a sectional sofa concept that has largely vanished, and a side chair... Formally launched in January 1952 at the winter furniture fairs in Chicago and Grand Rapids20 the new Eames Upholstered Wire Chairs made their public debut in the same month in context of a presentation at Macy's in New York, a presentation which not only underscores the important, central, role large department stores played in the dissemination of contemporary furnishing ideas in post-War America, but a presentation which in addition to the wire side chair shells also featured a long since lost wire lounge chair21, a work of which we can find no photographs of in-situ in Macy's; but, if its the same as the experimental model wire lounge chair depicted in the Vitra Design Museum's Eames Furniture Source Book22, it would represent a further development of the 1940 plywood Relaxation chair...

smow Blog Design Calender: April 30th 1993 - Opening of Citizen Office at the Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein

...With the exhibition Citizen Office the Vitra Design Museum staged not only their first conceptual, research based, exhibition, but also one of the first museal reflections on "the world of the office"... In many regards Citizen Office arose as the logical merging of two paths: in the late 1980s Vitra began the, somewhat unfortunately monickered, project "Office Dreams - Dream Offices", which saw them cooperate with designers on developing concepts for "a more attractive, sensual and social office"1, a project largely driven by the, then, Vitra CEO Rolf Fehlbaum, and as a targeted response to evolving realities...

5 New Architecture & Design Exhibitions for February 2020

..."Home Stories: 100 Years, 20 Visionary Interiors" at the Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Germany As previously opined in these dispatches, as long as humans have lived in shelters consideration has been given to the interior design of those shelters, considerations which, arguably, at least in a European context, became increasingly involved in the wake of the Renaissance and became increasingly professionalised with the development of what became Art Nouveau in the late 19th century and its associated Gesamtkunstwerk fixated architects... And considerations the Vitra Design Museum aim to follow, chart and dissect over the course of the century past and as elucidated through twenty case studies...
