Community Culture: Light A Box Leeds – Reebok x Eames

To highlight the launch of the Reebok x Eames Club C 85 – we visited Jake at Light A Box Leeds who specialise in crafting hand-built light-boxes designed to brighten up your brand, home or event. Based in Leeds City Centre only a short walk from our flagship store, Light A Box have become renowned for their high grade work with recent clients including vintage store 194 Local, brewery Amity Brew Co and Leeds ramen spot House Of Fu.

Reebok present the first landmark collaboration with Eames Office – using Reebok’s Club C to connote Eames’ design vision of timeless, classic design to adapt effortlessly into everyday life. The shoes feature a premium luxe garment leather upper, plush terry lining and are finished with a woven Eames label and custom sockliner to give a distinctive timeless vibe.

Charles Eames and Ray Eames were best known for their ground-breaking furniture creations for Herman Miller and Vitra, the husband-and-wife team redefined post-war American design and shaped the 20th century with their playful yet purposeful sensibility. Eames design represents a belief that the objects in our everyday life should enrich our existence and transcend utilitarian function to connect with people on a personal level. The Eames motto – “Take your pleasure seriously,” highlights the fact that form and function are inseparable paths to joyous ways of living, making the Club C a suitable everyday timeless canvas to celebrate the life and work of the Eames Office.

The Reebok x Eames Club C 85 is online now.
