visual narrative by eames demetrios: 77 steps . . .

in 2007 dan fogelson, vice president of sales and marketing at emeco (the aluminum chair company) came to the industrial design department at pratt to talk about some of emeco’s recent project with designers/architects like, philippe starck, frank gehry, norman foster and ettore sottsass. besides a line of great products, emeco also has a great story about it’s designed objects and the company as the manufacturer, even to the point of having eames demetrios make an interesting 3 minute film about how they construct and produce their, now classic, 1006 series chairs called “77 steps”
