Charles & Ray Eames
The Charles & Ray Eames Story
Considered eccentric by some, Charles and Ray Eames were nothing short of extraordinary creatives, having influenced numerous aspects of the design world from film to architecture and furniture. Known for their work with fiberglass and molded plastics, the two introduced the famous Lounge Chair and Ottoman in 1956, pieces that are still considered to be icons by many of today's designers. Charles' penchant for structure and dimension brought Ray's eye for texture, shape and detail to life. Indeed, these are two designers that broke from the pack--and will continue to lead well into the next century.
