Eames Demetrios shared this short film with me earlier today. I was excited for its launch. I've never seen a rapper/actor talk about mid-century modern design with so much gusto. Of course, the local knows what's up.
Ice Cube walks around Case Study House #8 aka the Eames House dropping knowledge about the dynamic Eames duo. Classic. I love his remark, "Each freeway [in LA] has its own personality... the 405 -- "bougie" traffic. The 110, haha, that's gangster traffic right there!" Ice Cube comparing music sampling to how the Eames built is fantastic: "You know taking something that already exists and making it something special -- you know, kind of like sampling."
