The Eames Foundation has launched a campaign to raise funds to save the Eames House, the landmark of mid-20th century modern architecture and home of Charles and Ray Eames, through the sale of uniquely designed prints.
The Eames House, close to 70-years-old, was one of roughly two-dozen homes designed to express man’s life in the modern world, and is now in need of renovation. The Eames Foundation also partnered with digital marketing agency, Nebo, to design the limited edition prints and website for the campaign.
“Our goal with this campaign is to raise $150,000 towards preserving and protecting the Eames house for the next 250 years,” said Eames Demetrios, Chairman of the Board of Eames Foundation. “Our partners have helped us create a handful of limited edition original prints to sell to help raise money for the cause.”
The prints are hand-numbered and sell for $75 dollars each. The prints are 100% original works inspired by the elegant geometry and understated simplicity of Eames designs. Only 500 of each limited edition print will be produced, and all purchases are tax-deductible. Herman Miller and Vitra are matching donations of $75 for each print that is sold.

“We loved collaborating with the Eames Foundation to help preserve this iconic landmark,” said Adam Harrell, President at Nebo. “The work of Ray and Charles Eames had a huge influence on my design philosophy, and these prints allow any fan of modern design to own a part of that amazing legacy.”
The Charles and Ray Eames House Preservation Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to preserving and protecting the Eames House and to providing educational experiences that celebrate the creative legacy of Charles and Ray Eames. Established in 2004, it is an officially recognized not-for-profit organization.
