This week, we were inspired by this short film made in 1972, where Charles Eames briefly discusses his approach to the design process. The questions and answers were the theoretical basis of the exhibit ‘Qu’est ce que le design?’ at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Palais de Louvre in France.

Our favorite question: “Does the creation of design admit constraint?” To which, of course, Eames expresses that constraints are all designers have. We can’t help but agree. Think about even the constraints you have just walking down the street.

If this video doesn’t give inspiration to your creative mind, we don’t know what will. Check it out below:
