Today, Dec. 15th is shared by a couple of heavyweights: Friedenreich Hundertwasser & Ray Eames
"Silent Steamers" woodcut
Friedenreich Hundertwasser: an Austrian born artist who's colorful organic compositions were broadcaast on canvas, in prints, clothing and maybe most notably, in architecture and philosophy.

Design: Ray Eames
Also born today was Ray Eames. Along with her husband and business partner Charles Eames, Ray Eames designed many iconic Modernist design masterpieces that continue to influence all aspects of design today. The Eames' are probably most famous for the plywood Eames chair. Mazeltov!
