{Inspiring Design} the Do Nothing Machine…

It’s a sunny Sunday & if I had this cool contraption in our back yard, it would be movin’ like crazy! I was just able to sneak in a little break & picked up my new dwell magazine to find an article about the “Do Nothing Machine” (pgs 86 & 87) designed by the Eames Office in 1957. Ray & Charles Eames (my all time favorite designers) made this intricate toy due to a request to design something that would show off the potential of Aluminum Company of America’s lightweight metals. This awesome machine gets it’s energy from a sun-charged battery pack.

What a perfect day to learn about something that does nothing, creatively… by the power of the sun- which is what I hope to do a little of today. Thanks again Ray & Charles for inspiring me with your genius. Now, back to a little dwell reading & drooling (over the design of course) before I head up to the studio.  Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
