Lot 370: Charles and Ray Eames

Freestanding kiosk

1964
Custom designed for the IBM Pavilion, New York World's Fair Fabricated by hand at DMI, Los Angeles
Approximately 16" high
One of only two examples known to have survived after the fair. The lot offered here exemplifies the exuberance of Eames Design. The carefully selected color combinations along with the heraldic flags and decoratve finials played an important part of the whole pavilion's ability to attract the general public into IBM's exhibits. Standing alone, this ingeniously engineered structure represents a rare opportunity to actually own a fully realized work of architecture by Charles Eames.

Estimate: $50,000 - $70,000
