Today, a group of University of the Arts ID students frolicked to a crit, where their Eames Hack project was the focus du jour–part of a a three day charette based on remake and DIY culture. The Eames Hack team, Jared Delorenzo, Tim Peet, Alexandra Temple Powell, Tom Reynolds, Alie Thomer, and Andrew McCandlish, presented two examples: a molded plywood dining-turned-high chair and the classic shell so cleverly transformed into a toilet-top throne. (Dudes better put the seat back, um, down…)

The Eames High Chair and Eames Toilet Seat “are about breaking the status surrounding high design objects. Through physically invasive alterations, these once iconic, elite, forms are liberated from their old, restrained image. The project is not a critique of the Eames, but rather a fulfillment of their original ideals.” This project is also published on Core77.
