product description

Great Reasons To Buy EAMES

  • This book offers a richly illustrated overview of design pioneers the Eameses and their revolutionary impact on middle-class America living.
  • It contains a wealth of material covering all aspects of the illustrious Eames repertoire, From the couple’s earliest furniture experiments to their seminal short film Powers of Ten
  • It's a hardback publication with a photographic cover, making it an ideal gift for a design addict.

Why You'll Love This Book

Though best renowned for their furniture, the Eames husband and wife team were also forerunners in architecture, textile design, photography, and film, exemplifying a multifunctional modernity in their work that is celebrated in this book which covers all aspects of the couple's groundbreaking repertoire.

Topics of discussion include the designer's innovative integration of craft and design, their inventive use of modern materials such as plywood and plastics, the impact of the Eames Lounge Chair- a defining furniture piece of the twentieth century, and the Eames' contribution to the Case Study Houses project which developed into an adaptable floor plan of multipurpose spaces and subsequently become a hallmark of postwar modern architecture.

Richly illustrated, EAMES brings to life ideas that transformed the visual character of post-war America and is an ideal gift for design aficionados.

Charles and Ray Eames are amongst the most renowned designers of the 20th century. It was their distinctly postwar American enthusiasm and openness to the world around them gave them free license to explore work in many disciplines.
