Charles Eames

Charles Eames portrait

Born in St. Louis, Charles Eames studied architecture at the University of Washington. He received in 1936 a fellowship at the Cranbrook Academy of Arts, Michigan. His colleagues there were Harry Bertoia, Eero Saarinen and Ray Kaiser, who became his wife in 1941.

During World War II he and his wife produced plywood splints and litters, developing a new method of bending plywood over three geometric planes into complex curves. Charles and Ray Eames worked closely with the manufacturer Herman Miller, creating highly innovative, beautiful furniture designs.

Later Eames concentrated on film-making and photography and worked for companies like IBM or the US Government.

Charles and Ray Eames, the husband-and-wife design team who pioneered economical, mass-produced, curvilinear furniture, created such familiar objects as their eponymous lounge chair, often called a modern interpretation of a 19th-century English club chair. This heavily illustrated company history, a compilation of its major projects, begins with the duo's molded-plywood experiments of the 1940s which spawned aircraft parts, children's toys and folding screens. The book proceeds through the '70s with functional furniture for homes and offices as well as exhibition layouts, audio components, houses designed with Eero Saarinen, graphics and slide shows. Also spotlighted are the Eameses' movies, documentaries ranging from illustrations of communication principles to cultural explorations of Mexico and India. The Neuharts are former colleagues of the Eameses.

Published on the occasion of a major international traveling exhibition organized by the U.S. Library of Congress and the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany (holders of the two richest Eames collections in the world), this comprehensive volume is a testament to the Eameses' belief that good design could improve people's lives. From the 1940s to the 1970s, the prolific husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames designed furniture, buildings, exhibitions, and interiors, and made films. They are perhaps best known for the form-fitting chairs that were mass-produced using the same techniques the Eameses developed in their first apartment. Taking a multifaceted approach to their multifaceted careers, this comprehensive, clothbound volume with French folds includes a filmography, making clear the pair's profound influence on the visual vernacular of the 20th century.
