8 1/2″ x 33 1/2″ chronological timeline. Folded as it was issued via Herman Miller.
The Work of Charles and Ray Eames
This was a promotional issue by Herman Miller and was a mailing to their clients.
This timeline was initially issued (though slightly different) in 1976 but this one is actually harder to find as most surviving copies are never released due to the owner’s relationship to Herman Miller and/or Eames. This is from the files of and Industrial Designer who worked for Miller on a number of projects and himself designed a number of mailings.
The timeline has applied tape “holders” to the back so that no pin holes are in the timeline itself. The exposed tape could easily be cut to frame the piece if desired as it is applied at the back and would not show if the tops were cut off.
The styling of this is essentially a copy of a previous Timeline for the HM company itself (and one we recently sold for $200) in terms of layout and was simply reworked to highlight the works of Charles & Ray.
