Cover Boys of Mid-Century Modern Design

Stephen Coles

Design Within Reach has republished a seminal photo from a 1961 issue of Playboy magazine. In DWR’s latest issue of Design Notes (a newsletter which I highly recommend) Jens Risom writes about the photo shoot and his regret that he didn’t get to know the other men that day as well as he would have liked. He did, however, know Mr. Eames well enough to call him “Charlie”.

    I take it the trolley that George Nelson is sitting on is one of his own designs too? Great shot of some massive contributors to modern furniture design.
