The creative duo Charles Eames and Ray Kaiser Eames were one of the most transformative forces in design history. This husband and wife team were best known for their furniture, but were also at the forefront of their field in architecture, textile design, photography, and film. Their work integrated craft and design with the use of modern materials, most notably plywood and plastics. The Eames Lounge Chair Wood, which was designed with molded plywood technology, is a defining furniture piece of the 20th century. In addition, with its adaptable floor plan of multipurpose spaces and their inventive use of industrial materials, their contribution to the Case Study Houses project became a hallmark of postwar modern architecture. This book showcases the couple’s entire career and their revolutionary impact on middle-class American living. Written by Gloria Koenig. Edited by Peter Gössel.
