The Eames

Ray and Charles looking at photographs, EAMES: The Architect and The Painter

Charles Eames (June 17th 1907- August 21st 1978) and Ray Eames (December 15th, 1912 – August 21, 1988) gave shape and form to America's twentieth century by re-defining visual and conceptual design. They embodied the change of the era from the development of the West Coast to the shift from an age of manufacturing to the information age. In a time of overlapping objectives, the Eames became cultural ambassadors by partnering with the federal government and the major businesses of the era to modernize postwar America through design.
