In honour of Women’s Day tomorrow we take a moment to celebrate female creators.

Furthermore, Ray Eames, with her convenient masculine pseudonym, has managed to make groundbreaking contributions to the fields of architecture, furniture design, industrial design and the manufacturing industry.

Let’s hear it for the ladies!
