The Eames Foundation has released a series of limited edition prints in an effort to preserve the modernist home of Charles and Ray Eames.
The post-war architectural masterpiece is located in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles and had housed the home and studio of the legendary American designers.
Featuring iconic motifs and inspiring quotes—including “Take your pleasure seriously.”—from the Eames archives, each of the four prints is produced in a limited run of 500 and priced at US$75.
The organizers of this fund-raising scheme is hoping to raise US$150,000, which is the amount required to preserve the historic property for the next 250 years.
You can make an order for the prints over here.
