The Bubble Machine and Eames Tandem Seating Posted June 24, 2014 by Daniel Ostroff

Great Everything Connects quote of the week, from Llisa Demetrios, artist and Eames Office Archivist:

“I always enjoy the fact that the shape to connect four towns with the shortest road—which is at the top of the panel on the bubble machine in Mathematica—is also the shape on the seat and back of the airport tandem seating, since airports are about connecting towns too!”
