Miniature Eames Lounge Chair / KSpence

Miniature Eames Lounge Chair / KSpence

The lounge chair and ottoman set is just one of two Eames designs that Shapeways user KSpence has scripted for our enjoyment, the other being Charles and Ray’s LCW molded plywood chair. These scaled models of mid-century icons (which come in various sizes) bring attention to the Eames’s thoughtful manipulation of form and material. The fact that these collectibles are 3D-printed, however, offers a bit of a funny paradox: While the Eames were working precisely within the limits of malleable plywood and plastics back in the 20th century, today, rapid prototyping has seemingly freed us from these design limitations, yet we continue to revisit technically dated forms — via Architizer
