Review:

"Among the most beloved designers of the American Midcentury movement, the Eames were also prolific artists in multimedia. See it all in this collection." 
-THE SOCIETY DIARIES

"The humble Eames chair—with its fiberglass seat perched on a four-legged metal base—might just be the poster child for midcentury-modern furniture, its balance of form and function perfectly summing up the popular design theory of the era. Now a new book provides an inside look at the life of its creators, Charles and Ray Eames. . . The World of Charles and Ray Eames showcases the design duo through the decades with photographs of their graphic, forward-looking home as well as their endlessly innovative office. Pictures of their creations—the famous Eames lounge chair, an abundance of toys for children, a molded plywood splint developed for the U.S. Navy—join a selection of reprinted texts, archival images, and hand-scrawled letters and pages ripped straight from the notepads of the designers themselves."
-ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST

"Charles and Ray truly embodied Californian modernism. You cannot help but smile at image after image of this handsome and healthy couple working alongside other equally sunny faced artists and designers in their Eames Office. Here they collectively experimented with new material, finding new solutions for sustainable products, creating movies, stills and architectural models for living. Their energy is intoxicating, almost bouncing off the pages of this book."
-d-talks.com

"At long last - the first comprehensive book in over a decade on the legacy of two of the most important 20th century designers, Charles and Ray Eames."

Book Description Thames & Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Charles (1907 - 1978) and Ray (1912 - 1988) Eames are among the most important designers of the 20th century, and the story of the Eames Office is that of visual and material culture in the post-war, modern period. The World of Charles and Ray Eames charts the history of their inspiring and prolific world and brings together key works and ideas explored at the Eames Office throughout its extraordinary history. This definitive monograph explores the era-defining work of the Eames Office, a `laboratory' active for over four decades, where the Eameses and their collaborators produced a vast array of pioneering and influential projects - from architecture, furniture and product design to film, photography, multi-media installation and exhibitions, as well as new models for arts education. Themes include `The Eames Office: Life in Work', `At Home with the Eameses', `Information Machines', `The Seeing Eye', `Office USA: Communicating "America" at Home and Abroad', and `The Art of Living'. Alongside newly commissioned texts by leading design experts, The World of Charles and Ray Eames will include contemporaneous reviews and magazine articles, writings by Charles and Ray Eames themselves, personal correspondence and a comprehensive reference section.
