Brimming with more than 2,500 images and insider information, this two-volume book in a slipcase sheds new light on the context in which the furniture of Charles and Ray Eames was created. It documents in unparalleled detail how the design process in the Eames Office developed as well as the significant roles played by specific designers and manufacturers.

In issue 14 Highsnobiety Magazine explore the theme of “factions,” highlighting how and why the lines are increasingly blurring between scenes and what that means for counterculture overall. From time immemorial, music has served as the baseline (and bass line) for almost all prominent factions. From punks and hip-hop heads to goths, ravers, indie kids and even skinheads, every group has their own codes and styles rooted in sound. With this in mind, Highsnobiety decided to turn the spotlight on four distinct personalities, Big Sean, Oh Hyuk, Young M.A and Jamiroquai, within music for the cover stories. Beyond our four cover stories, Issue 14 of Highsnobiety Magazine also looks back at the origins of several contemporary subcultures.
