Eames: Beautiful Details
Welcome to the world of Charles and Ray Eames, a pair of America's most influential designers of the 20th century. This book strives to visually create the Eames' life and work by taking the viewer through a delightful journey, focusing on their ""beautiful details."" They brought a sense of humor and joy to everything they created, and the design and layout of the book aims to convey that spirit in a visual feast for the eyes. This book is a testament to Eames and the lasting value of good design that their Eames lounge chair, created in 1956, endures today as perhaps the most recognizable and coveted piece of mid-century furniture design. Their experiments in technological innovations, like molded plywood and fiberglass, resulted in such classic pieces as the bent plywood LCW and DCM Chairs, the Molded Plastic Chairs, and the Aluminum Group; all of which are still in production by Herman Miller. Unlike any other book previously published on Charles and Ray Eames, this unique monograph is a visual celebration of their work and life, and was created in true collaboration with Charles’s grandson, Eames Demetrios, and other members of the Eames family.
