eames wool blanket

Charles & Ray Eames, 1947
100% merino lambswool, jacquard weave
Made in Germany by Vitra

Like many other prominent twentieth-century architects and designers, Charles and Ray Eames also sought to implement their ideas about colors, shapes and materials in the design of textiles. The 'Dot Pattern' was created in 1947 in conjunction with an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The pattern is a large-scale graphic composition made up of crosses and dots, thereby referencing the abstract paintings by Ray Eames from the 1930s.

The Eames Wool Blankets are produced in a jacquard weave, which means that the colors of the 'Dot Pattern' are reversed on the front and back. Available in several hues, the wool blankets are made of 100% high-quality Merino lambswool, and are particularly light, fine and soft to the touch while also providing optimal warmth and thermal balance.

Merino lambswool is a high-quality natural fiber obtained from the first shearing of Merino lambs. It is extremely light, fine and soft to the touch while also providing optimal warmth and thermal balance. Working with premium natural fibers requires considerable technical know-how and manual skill. For this reason, Vitra blankets are made by a German blanket manufacturer with over 100 years of experience in fabricating products from natural fibers. Their expert hand craftsmanship ensures the high-quality execution of the designs.

Eames

Husband and wife team Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames played a major role in the world of modern architecture and furniture, as well as working in industrial and graphic design, fine art, and film. Charles completed two years of study at Washington University in St. Louis. With his design and life partner Ray, he designed prize-winning furniture that expanded upon the wood molding techniques of Alvar Aalto. Ray-Bernice Alexandra Kaiser Eames began as an abstract expressionist painter, having graduated from Bennett Women’s College in Millbrook, NY and later studying under Hans Hoffman while living in New York City. She co-founded the American Abstract Artists and has a painting in the Whitney museum’s permanent collection.
Vitra is a Swiss company dedicated to improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design. Following in the tradition of Charles & Ray Eames, who have influenced Vitra's approach to sustainability in many ways, product longevity is central to the company's contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection.
