Old Eames Manufacturing Film

This is cool on so many levels. Watch how they made classic Eames fiberglas chairs in the '60s. Long, but well worth it, especially the part near the end where a guy pours molten aluminum into a thingy and then a press casts the upper and lower bases onto the center support tube. I don't recall seeing them upholstered with leather, or anything else for that matter. I've only seen them in sleek bare fiberglas of assorted colors.
