Mid Century Modern Light Switch Covers
For over a half century, American designers Charles and Ray Eames helped shape and influence nearly every aspect of American life. From their iconic mid-century modern masterpiece home (Case Study House No. 8), molded plywood and fiberglass furniture line and biomorphic textile designs, the husband-and-wife team exerted a profound influence on the visual character of daily life in America, whether at home or at work.
Their ground-breaking use of new materials such as plywood, fiberglass and plastics transformed the way Americans furnished their homes with functional yet affordable high-end designs for many middle-class Americans. From the beginning of their collaborative partnership, Charles and Ray Eames focused on creating multifunctional modern designs. In the 1940s, Charles Eames collaborated with Eero Saarinen on a group of wood furniture designs that won the Museum of Modern Art's (MOMA) Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition. These designs, which included experimental molded plywood chairs, were conceived of as functional, affordable options for consumers seeking modern yet livable domestic surroundings. These issues proved to be the leading distinctions of much of Eames furniture designs that still exist today.
Taking a similar approach as the Eames for using readily available material such as plywood and transforming an ordinary, mundane object like a light switch or outlet cover into a focal point of a room was a huge undertaking but Modern Mailbox was up for the challenge.
