the eames foundation member appreciation day was on saturday and every inch of their case study house still inspires me. sadly, no interior photos allowed but there was plenty of wine and good friends to color our own house of cards with and i got one of the docents to demonstrate the rotating front door bell. illustrations by andrew, mandy, cheri and me.

“The Curta Mechanical Calculator had 605 parts and required no electricity; it operated by means of a handcrank at the top, earning it the nickname of The Pepper Grinder Calculator, and made a pleasing mechanical purr as the parts moved.
It was designed by Curt Herzstark while he was a prisoner in a concentration camp.”
