Charles and Ray Eames were the golden couple of postwar American design. True multimedia pioneers, they worked in furniture design, architecture, print, photography and filmmaking. They imbued the modern twentieth-century aesthetic with originality, color and freshness, and their ability to mold plastics and plywood with an elegance not previously seen resulted in some of the most influential furniture design of the modern age – witnessed not just in the continuing popularity of their original designs but also in the mass production of countless imitations. This book contains a historical-critical essay discussing the life and work of the Eameses, followed by an illustrated appreciation of their groundbreaking work.
