Eames Shrine finally installed, originally uploaded by moleitau.

From Charles & Ray Eames ‘India Report’ via Design Observer:

“beware of the professional or specialist who when confronted with a problem having to do with design — seems suddenly to abandon the disciplines of his own profession and put on his art hat — this can happen to those who are otherwise most rational — doctors, engineers, politicians, philosophers.”

Opt for “King’s Lead Hat” instead?
