Essential Eames - Words and Pictures by Vitra
From the Vitra Design Museum, 2017
Charles and Ray Eames are regarded by many as the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Perhaps best known for their timeless furniture designs (Eames Lounge Chair), the husband-and-wife team also made pioneering contributions in the fields of architecture (Eames House), film (Powers of Ten), exhibitions (Mathematica), toys (House of Cards), graphics, and much more.
Essential Eames: Words & Pictures draws from their shared lifetime of speeches and writings, as well as an archive of nearly one million photographs taken by the Eameses and their staff over a period of more than four decades.
This book was carefully edited and curated by two of the Eames Office’s five principals: Eames Demetrios, Director, and Carla Hartman, Education Director.
