The work of Charles and Ray Eames: a legacy of invention
Harry N. Abrams in association with the Library of Congress and the Vitra Design Museum, 2005 - Architecture - 205 pages
From the 1940s to the 1970s, the Los Angelesbased husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames practiced design at its most virtuous and its most expansive. Their furniture, toys, buildings, films, graphics, exhibitions, and books all aimed to improve society, not only functionally but also culturally and intellectually. The essays in this handsome and generously illustrated volume examine the Eameses' projects in the contexts of science, corporate patronage, and politics as well as those of modern design, architecture, and art.
