I recently discovered this video of how the Eames shell chairs are (or were) made, and hereby enter it into the factory porn hall of fame. Watching the process makes the chairs seem even more beautiful, if that's possible. Enjoy.
Great video !! Thank you for sharing
This makes me sad for all the tangible human skills that have been lost--replaced by CNC whatevers.
I watched this same exact video in my history of id course last spring, love it.
It's fantastic: everything made by hand - this is the only way to get in common with materials and shapes!
Thanks for the vid!
For those of you still interested (as the video is down), this site seems to have some Eames chair construction videos available:
The new ones now are made of polypropylene, the originals were fiberglass. I guess they changed because of environmental concerns.
