Essential Eames: Words & Pictures

Vitra Design Museum, 2017

Charles and Ray Eames are counted among the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Perhaps best known for their furniture designs, the Eameses also made pioneering contributions to fields such as architecture, film, exhibitions, toys and graphics. 'Essential Eames: Words & Pictures' contains a selection of writings and quotes from the lives of the designer couple, illustrated with images from the archive of nearly one million photographs accumulated by Charles and Ray Eames over the course of four decades. Eames Demetrios, Director of the Eames Office, and Carla Hartman, Director of Education at the Eames Office – two of the Eameses' five grandchildren – have carefully curated the content as the book's editors.
