a new skateboard that pays tribute to the beloved Dot Pattern.

Introducing the fourth addition to the Eames Office x Globe collaboration: The Dot Patten Skateboard Deck!

In 1947, The Museum of Modern Art in New York invited a number of studios to submit textile designs for their “Competition for Printed Fabrics”. The Eames Office responded with two designs, Crosspatch and Sea Things. A third design, Dot Pattern, was completed but not entered into the competition. Dot Pattern repeats a variety of abstract, cross-shaped compositions of tapered lines and round dots. The shape and rhythm of the pattern remind some of musical notes, while others see a resemblance to chairs like the Eames’ famous plywood models, with their tubular frames and rounded seats and backs.

Although Dot Pattern did not go into production during Charles and Ray’s lifetime, it became their most popular textile design. In 1999, the Eames Office revived the pattern using the original drawings. Since then, Dot Pattern fabrics have been manufactured by Maharam, and many other objects have been enriched with the design.

Each deck comes with a custom-designed “Eames” wall-mount and a certificate of authenticity.

More About Globe

Charles & Ray Eames are among the most influential American designers of the 20th century, best known for their innovative contributions to architecture, furniture design, industrial design, photographic arts, and perhaps most importantly, pioneers of the press Globe uses today to make skateboards. Sharing in a similar appreciation for craftsmanship, details, and “taking your pleasure seriously”, the Eames Office is proud to present an on-going collaboration with Globe.

The Globe ReGrowth Program offsets their timber use by partnering with the National Forest Foundation (NFF) to donate to their tree-planting program. Globe’s yearly donations to the NFF help plant more than three times the amount of trees they harvest annually in making their skateboards.
