Interior View at the Los Angeles International Airport, 1963 | Photo: Julius Shulman | The stylish stewardesses and pilot captured Shulman’s attention, and yet the inanimate objects still have a local significance of their own. The molded plastic shell seating helped put the Venice-based studio of designers Ray and Charles Eames on the map. The couple became acclaimed industrial designers, creative visionaries whose work was known for its practical applications as well as its experimental eccentricities. The Eames’ tandem sling seating became another fixture of airport interiors, and Shulman also photographed their landmark home (Case Study House No. 8) in the Pacific Palisades.
