Those familiar with the work of Eames are often surprised to learn the extent of their work. The book illuminates the connection between the countless works of architecture, furniture, design, cinema, exhibitions etc ...
Author Eames Demetrios, grandson of Charles & Ray Eames and director of the Eames Office, explores the energy of the Eames world from a unique perspective, illuminated by his special relationship with his grandparents Charles and Ray.
He shares personal anecdotes, previously unseen photos and numerous interviews with former friends and colleagues of the couple to make connections between the influential philosophy of the Eames and their much admired work.
Very accessible, this book is an excellent introduction to the life of this couple of designers and provides a superb understanding of their work process.

Learn more about this designer

Charles and Ray Eames are a couple of iconic designers of the 20th century. Far ahead of their time, they have contributed to the democratization of designer furniture for the general public, in particular thanks to the invention of new industrial manufacturing techniques allowing mass production.
We owe them many iconic design pieces from the 1950s and 60s combining comfort and ergonomics: the famous Lounge Chair, the DCW (Dining Chair Wood) or the armchair RAR (Rocking Armchair Rodbase).
