    The idea for this kind of thing comes from the film by Charles and Ray Eames "The Powers of 10" - they were famous designers from mid-century.

    They made films:

    And they designed a lot of really great furniture, houses, etc. Here is their iconic plywood chair:

    And you might have seen their famous lounge chair on "Frasier":

    The house on "The Incredibles" is basically filled with a lot of furniture that is "eames-ish"

    Ok, just call me Cliff Claven. Sorry for the random trivia.
