Film Nights with RIBA London & Disegno
Charles and Ray Eames were famous not only for their house, furniture and objects but mainly for their exhaustive documentation of their way of life. Their lifestyle was packaged as a commodity for middle-class Americans to imitiate and desire. Through images, films,
lectures and interviews, they disseminated their work and life to the public. The film was directed by Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey.
Pat Kirkham is the Professor of Decorative Arts, Design and Culture at the Bard Graduate Centre in New
York and a Senior Research Fellow at Kingston University. She has written extensively about the interplay between design, gender and film including her book, Charles and Ray Eames: Designers of the Twentieth Century, which was published in 1995 by the MIT Press.
