Vintage How They Make An Eames Shell Chair Video

I think most design minded people hold a special regard for any Eames creation, but their Shell Chair was definitely one of the most iconic of the bunch. Watching this video is an amazing experience, getting to see every nook and cranny of how these amazing chairs are constructed. What I really love about this video is how there isn’t one word spoken in the whole thing, there’s only the frantic jazz music of Buddy Collette to guide you through the process. Beautiful isn’t strong enough of a word for this video.
