The couple who turned American living rooms inside out
The creative duo Charles Eames (1907-1978) and Ray Kaiser Eames (1912-1988) changed the face of America. Best known for their furniture, the couple also pioneered architecture, textile design, photography and film.
Eames' work represented a new, multifunctional modernity characterized by the combination of craftsmanship and design and the use of modern materials such as plywood and plastic. The Eames Lounge Chair Wood, made with a new plywood molding technique, became a hallmark of the 20th century. For the case study houses, the couple not only made innovative use of industrial materials, but also developed a flexible floor plan for multifunctional spaces that became a hallmark of modern post-war architecture.
Covering all aspects of Eames' illustrious oeuvre, from the earliest experiments in furniture to the seminal short film Powers of Ten, this volume examines his revolutionary influence on middle-class American interiors.
