The Real Madmen of Design 1961

George Nelson, Edward Wormley, Eero Saarinen, Harry Bertoia, Charles Eames and Jens Risom Playboy Magazine, July 1961.

How is it possible I have never run across this photo?  I must have been living under a rock.  When I saw this on vinta9e I had to pass it on.

What is not to love about this collection of talented designers, in their prime, with their iconic work looking super dapper?  The only thing that could make this spread from a 1961 issue of playboy is if Rae Eames and/or Florence Knoll was also included.


  1. That is total designer porn.

  2. Awesome, glad you passed it on!

  3. I found this photo a couple months ago and thought the exact same thing! I saved it to my hard drive because it is so perfect.
