The Eames Foundation, the nonprofit that cares for the 70-year-old house and grounds of modern architectural legends Charles and Ray Eames, is in need of cash. The foundation is hoping to raise $150k to take care of the residence for the next 250 years, and though they've made it most of the way, they're still short some $20,000. Instead of throwing a fundraiser or simply asking for donations, the group has teamed up with digital marketing agency Nebo to create a series of limited-edition prints designed in the Eames' restrained, sophisticated style.
Each print is $75, the cost of which will be matched by Herman Miller and Vitra. Click here to shop them. Your dollars will go towards sealing the roof, walls and paint of the structure; a climate control plan; and the restoration of damaged items.
