The exhibit symbolizes a bridge between different styles, different mediums, and different cultures— connected by the artistic expression reflected in their works. East Meets West brings people together to celebrate these legendary designers and their iconic works which continue to inspire the next generation.

To further inspire design fans and aficionados, CWC invited the descendants of these design legends to the show's launch: Architect Ed Calma, Lor Calma's son and Eames Demetrios, Charles and Ray Eames' grandson.  Both gave short talks that offered an intimate view into their rich design heritage.
