The creative duo of Charles Eames (1907-1978) and Ray Kaiser Eames (1912-1988) transformed the American aesthetic. Although they are known more for their furniture, the team formed by this marriage was also a pioneer in the field of architecture, textile design, photography and cinema.
The work of the Eameses defined a new and versatile modernity, an example for its way of integrating craftsmanship and design, as well as the use of modern materials, especially plywood and plastics. The Eames Lounge Chair Wood, designed with molded plywood technology, became a representative piece of furniture of the 20th century. In addition, the couple not only used industrial materials creatively in their input into the Case Study Houses project, but also developed an adaptable floor plan of multi-purpose spaces that would become a hallmark of post-war modern architecture.
This book covers every aspect of the Eameses' illustrious repertoire, from their early experiments in furniture creation to their seminal short film Powers of Ten and its revolutionary impact on middle-class American life.
