I’m Chanpory, and this is my site on how to live and work better as a designer.

Eame film festivalThe misnomered furniture store, Design Within Reach, is hosting the Eames Film Festival at various retail locations nationwide. If you haven’t seen any of the films by the legendary design couple, Charles and Ray Eames, you must attend. Their most famous film, Powers of Ten, truly induces eyegasms.

We missed the San Francisco showing, but it’s not too late to attend the event in other cities like Seattle, Atlanta, Boston, St. Louis, Miami and 10 other cities.

For design students, this is also a chance to schmooze with local designers while lusting after unattainable modern furniture. The merchandise might be out of reach, but the event’s free and they’ll be serving refreshments–free booze and fancy snacks=free dinner.

RSVP early before spaces fill up.
