Charles and Ray Eames gave shape to America's 20th century. From the 1940s to the late 1970s, the Los Angeles-based husband-and-wife team designed furniture, buildings, toys, films, graphics, exhibitions, and books that aimed to improve society--not only functionally, but culturally and intellectually as well. This title includes six generously illustrated essays that examine the couple's projects in the contexts of science, corporate patronage, politics, and modern design. 200 illustration, 150 in full color.

An interesting couple who remained highly creative through the span of their careers. I first discovered their work as a child when I saw their brilliant film "Powers of 10". I intend on picking up more books of their work. Great reference for designers and architects.

I have not received the book yet. I will probably like it though, because I had one of his first plywood lounge chairs in the 40's when I was going to art school in Kansas City.

As a kid growing up I wasn't so crazy about the modernism that the Eames represented - but as an adult in a post-modern society you can really see their charm and warmth. This books reads like a history of visual design for the later half of the 20th Century. Charles and Ray did it all - industrial design, architecture, graphics, film and of course furniture. Long before multimedia was a buzzword, these two were making magic. I only wish that the book has some of the more charming details of their lives (the Smithsonian exhibit actually had their Christmas cards). But all in all, this is a fantastic read...

The Eamses were innovators in many fields such as Architecture, furniture design, film, etc. But to my mind their gretest acheivement was the definition of a new profession, 'Graphic Design', or as I beleive they called it, a 'Design Office'.
Up till then, there was 'Commercial Art', and 'Art Departments', and whatever styling was applied to an industrial product was done as an afterthought, and usually by an amateur.
After The Eamses, a new recognition that the design of appearances was a craft and a profession, and not just an art, was born.
This book demonstrates in many ways, how Ray and Charles Eames applied this and many other insights to the various fields of endeavor that they entered and changed forever.

Words don't do justice to the work & imagination of Ray & Charles Eames! This is a beautiful book covering the creative minds of two of the best modern furniture designers. Filled with great pictures, & very complete text of their design & the many other things they created besides furniture.The Eames' are my biased favorite, if you love modern 50's furniture,fabric, & art you must have this book.They worked for the infamous Herman Miller company, who has reissued many of the Eames furniture pieces available again today.As creator of the modern molded fiberglass chair, & molded plywood, the Museaum Of Modern Art has Charles' chairs as Art, which they are & comfortable too!More than comparable to their Danish counterparts,this couple brought us sleek,smooth lined furniture that will take us into the space age for at least another fifty years!(check out A.I.-incredible backgrounds of modern furniture!)

This a comprehensive visual and written account of the work, lives and contributions to graphic design, product design, interior design, furniture design, print-making, of Charles and Ray Eames.

The book contains great photos of the Eames' early design plans, their final work, and even has candid photos of them at work.

This is a wonderful addition to any coffee table! I learned so much about this creative couple that I never knew before. The pictures are A+ & very well done. If you are a fan of Eames furniture, you cannot live without this book!!
