The Eames-Inspired Guitar

Fans argue that the work of Ray and Charles Eames inspired the design of pretty much, well, everything, and here's further proof. Says Greg Opatik, design director for one of the manufacturers that builds Eames Classic furniture and head of Sinuous, his firm that builds beautiful guitars: "I approached [designing] this with a process that Charles Eames helped develop and, in the end, I have a guitar that has a very sculptural form with a comforting feel and performs like something defined as an 'instrument' should perform.
