We’ve covered Charles Eames extensively and we’ve briefly touched on Eero Saarinen. Both of these individuals are major pioneers of modern design furniture and have made their iconic contributions. What many people may not be aware of is that they also collaborated on creative projects and this month, popular architecture website ArchDaily is highlighting one of them with a virtual 3D model walkthrough.
Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen put their creative minds together to create the Entenza House. a residence defined by its simple steel frames. Named after major American modernism figure John Entenza and conceived as part of his Case Study Program, the home served as a model intended to educate the public on an example of modern housing at a low cost. The home is located near the famous house designed by Charles and his wife Ray Eames which, coincidentally, was also built as part of the same program.
The Entenza House was ultimately constructed in 1949, comprised of glass and steel with a flexible open space that could be modified to accommodate multiple family members and guests. The home’s communal area was capable of being divided into various areas for dining, relaxation, or meetings. Entenza would go on to live in the house for five years.
