Eames, Updated

You're on thin goddamn ice with most designers when you presume to update the work of the likes of Charles and Ray Eames, a proposition that on the surface sounds akin to colourizing Citizen Kane. Herman Miller therefore tread lightly when producing the collection that just launched at New York Design Week. Their iconic but famously uncomfortable molded-ply chair gets new upholstery that preserves all of the original's graceful curves. And their wire base tables, originally designed for outdoors, get a new stone top option. Sometimes updating the classics is the best way to give them new life. (Thanks for the heads-up, Metropolis.)
