Bachelor Number Three, Please.

I love this photograph DWR sent out in their Design Notes email today.
Who knew some of our favorite designers were Playboy cover models?
This photo appeared in a 1961 Playboy article Designs for Living.

Left to right - George Nelson, Edward Wormley, Eero Saarinen,
Harry Bertoia, Charles Eames and Jens Risom. So hot!

Seriously, this photo is amazing. I emailed them to see if we can get a high-res copy. I'm all about printing and framing this.

how mind-blowing would it be to be in the same room with all of those men at the same time. Do you think in 1961 they even had an inclination that they would have as much influence on the built environment as they do.

Great reminiscences from Jens Risom as well to go with that image in the DWR newsletter. I'm glancing at my Jens Risom coffee table fondly as I type this... heh.
