Garden of Eames: Shell Chairs as Art by Chris LaBrooy

Eames Shell Chairs as Art

Garden Of Eames is an ongoing project by artist Chris LaBrooy in which he takes the well known Mid-century Modern Classic shell chairs designed by Charles Eames and reimagines, remixes and reinvents them as new objects and artworks.

We are big fans of Chris LaBrooy having posted twice about his work already. The Scotland based artist’s work explores typography, architecture, product design and visual arts.

By distorting, combining and embellishing the Eames shell chairs (the dining, the armchair and the rocker versions), LaBrooy turns the recognizable design icon into something entirely new. And fun. Take a look at the project thus far.
