design: Charles & Ray Eames
CHARLES & RAY EAMES
For more than four decades, American designers Charles and Ray Eames helped shape nearly every facet of American life. From their architecture, furniture,
and textile designs to their photography and corporate design, the husband-and-wife team exerted a profound influence on the visual character of daily life in America,
whether at work or at home. Their pioneering use of new materials and technologies, notably plywood and plastics, transformed the way Americans furnished their homes,
introducing functional, affordable, and often highly sculptural objects and furnishings to many middle-class Americans.
