The world of Charles and Ray Eames
We love the mid-century designers-couple Charles and Ray Eames. Through their work and designs we can feel a great positive energy, authenticity and happiness.
“Take your pleasure seriously” is a famous quote by Charles Eames. They are not only great designers, but also very inspiring people. Lovely humans, great designs…
Charles (June 17, 1907 – August 21, 1978) and Ray Eames (December 15, 1912 – August 21, 1988) are best known for their personal and artistic collaboration, and their innovative designs that shaped the course of modernism. Their firm worked on a diverse array of projects, with designs for exhibitions, furniture, houses, monuments, and toys. Together they developed manufacturing processes to take advantage of new materials and technology, aiming to produce high quality everyday objects at a reasonable cost. Many of their furniture designs are considered contemporary classics, particularly the Eames Lounge & Shell Chairs, while the Eames House is a seminal work of architectural modernism.
