HUE1008: The Eames Office is widely recognized as the 20th century’s foremost repository of unbridled creativity. With its exceptional combination of timeless beauty and infinite practicality, the work of Charles and Ray Eames continues to leave an indelible imprint on public and living spaces throughout the world House Industries is a unique oasis of typography and design that stands out in a cultural continuum of endless electronic effluvia. From their sketchpads, pencils, pens, brushes and Bezier curves flow their passion for authenticity and integrity. House Industries' fonts scream from billboards, wish happy whatever from tens of thousands of greeting cards, serve as the basis for consumer product logos and add elements of style to a wide range of mainstream media. House artists have mastered a large cross-section of design disciplines, transcending graphic conventions and reaching out to a broad audience. What ultimately shines in the House Industries oeuvre is what always conquers mediocrity: a genuine love for their subject matter. House Industries introduces a set of alphabet blocks that is also a model of the landmark Eames house and studio. Sitting high atop the Pacific Palisades and overlooking Santa Monica and the Pacific Ocean, the original Eames House was built in 1949 as number eight in the series of Case Study Houses and is still recognized for its revolutionary use of space and materials. Charles and Ray Eames moved into the house in 1950 and it was continuously occupied until Ray's death in 1988. The House and Studio is now managed by the Eames Foundation, which oversees its preservation and administers tours to foundation members. The blocks form an educational puzzle image of this monument to American mid-century design and architecture. The 36 blocks also showcase letters, numerals and symbols from the Eames Century Modern collection.
