It's not just because Bespoke Innovations showcases one of their prosthetic legs in this photo with an Eames chair that we feature them here.  It's because they are using 3D and other new technologies to do what is completely congruent with the work and objectives of Charles and Ray Eames.  As Bespoke records on their website: "We envision the day when individuals are invited to participate in the creation of the products that have meaning to them on a fundamental level."

"Each of our bodies is unique, as are our tastes and styles. Humans are anything but one-size-fits-all, and we want to recognize that fact. We achieve this by creating products that allow our clients to personalize their prosthetic legs. Our hope is to enable our clients to emotionally connect with their prosthetic limbs, and wear them confidently ..."

In trying to think about how best to illustrate how these BESPOKE statements relate to Charles and Ray Eames, I think about the Eames House.  Often people tell me that they want to show me a newly built house "just like the Eames House," and I ask them if it is a steel frame house.  When they answer yes, I respond, "It's probably not like the Eames House."  Because Charles and Ray did not set out to build a steel frame house, nor did they set out to build a house that would suit everyone.  The materials they used were the best, humble materials available to them to accomplish the objective of their house, which was to serve a couple who liked to work around the clock and whose only child was already in college.  So they gave themselves a large home studio and a small guest bedroom.  That's how specific the Eames House was to the needs of its owners.  Charles and Ray used steel frame because that was the best material and technology for their purposes in 1949.    Bespoke offers their customers products specific to their needs and individual requirements, using appropriate 2012 technology and materials.

In 1941 Charles Eames wrote:  "The designer should be capable of forming in his own mind a clearer conception of the NEED he is to fill and he should possess a vocabulary of facts regarding materials and techniques adequate enough to enable him to fill the need appropriately and with feeling.”
