The Eames House - Case Study House No. 8 in 3D

The Eames House - Case Study House No. 8 in 3D

I am a huge fan of Charles and Ray Eames. They are icons in the design and architecture world with major contributions in both areas. One of the most famous masterpieces was their house, also known as Case Study House No. 8. Unusual for such an avant-garde design, the Eames Case Study No. 8 house was a thoroughly lived-in, usable, and well-loved home. Many icons of the modern movement are depicted as stark, barren spaces devoid of human use, but photographs and motion pictures of the Eames house reveal a richly decorated, almost cluttered space full of thousands of books, art objects, artifacts, and charming knick-knacks as well as dozens of projects in various states of completion. The Eames' gracious live-work lifestyle continues to be an influential model. Sava Zivkovic put together an excellent case study showing his reproduction of the Eames house in 3D. The level of details and realism is incredible and totally worth checking it out. The Eames House is widely considered as one of the great buildings of the 20th century. Also known as the Case Study house 8, this beautiful piece of architecture was constructed in 1949 using only prefabrication and off-the-shelf materials. Sava Zivkovic recently published his personal animated short where he tried to capture the essence of the house. This project of his is in many ways a case study of its own, and the making of it is kindly being shared by him here. Enjoy! Reference Images Clay Renders Making of For more information visit

Classic Stylish Work of Keith Haring

You might not have heard of him, but he truly was one of the greatest graphic designers of the 1980's. Inspired by graffiti works in NY, he also was an excellent street artist, becoming world famous. Haring achieved his first public attention with chalk drawings in the subways of New York. The exhibitions were filmed by the photographer Tseng Kwong Chi. Around this time, "The Radiant baby" became his symbol. His bold lines, vivid colors, and active figures carry strong messages of life and unity. Starting in 1980, he organized exhibitions in Club 57. He participated in the Times Square Exhibition and drew, for the first time, animals and human faces. In 1981 he sketched his first chalk drawings on black paper and painted plastic, metal and found objects. In 1988, Haring was diagnosed with AIDS. He established the Keith Haring Foundation in 1989, its mandate being to provide funding and imagery to AIDS organizations and children's programs, and to expand the audience for Haring’s work through exhibitions, publications and the licensing of his images. He died in 1990. His style is a true reference for us, designers of the 2000's, through his bright colors and unique style.
