American design retailer Death by Modernism has created a fascinating mid-century emoji set featuring famous works by designers Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen and Hans J Wegner.
The retailer, which sells mid-century furniture and miscellaneous interior design products, has created an emoji set that matches the furnitures perfectly. Founder Raj Haldar told Dezeen that the 12 emojis aim to “refresh” Apple’s iMessage furniture emojis.
Besides that, he also wanted customers and friends to visually convey what sort of posh designer chair they wished to sit in.
Among the fascinating emojis include the wooden ‘Eames House Bird’, ‘La Chaise chair’, the ‘Eames Eiffel chair’, the ‘Nelson Bubble Pendant Lamp’ and the ‘Panton S-Chair’ by Danish furniture designer Vernor Panton.
There is even an emoji featuring Charles and Ray Eames, with Charles wearing a colorful bowtie.
The unique emoji set can be downloaded for free on any iOS device from the Apple app store. It has received stellar reviews, with an average of 4.6 stars.
