Charles and Ray Eames are regarded by many as the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Perhaps best known for their timeless furniture designs (Eames Lounge Chair), the husband-and-wife team also made pioneering contributions in the fields of architecture (Eames House), film (Powers of Ten), exhibitions (Mathematica), toys (House of Cards), graphics, and much more.
Essential Eames: Words & Pictures draws from their shared lifetime of speeches and writings, as well as an archive of nearly one million photographs taken by the Eameses and their staff over a period of more than four decades.
This book was carefully edited and curated by two of the Eames Office’s five principals: Eames Demetrios, Director, and Carla Hartman, Education Director.
