Charles and Ray Eames literally shaped Modern design during the postwar years. Yet despite worldwide recognition and their enduring legacy, until now there has never been a publication that focuses on their design philosophy. Prolific furniture designers, filmmakers and exhibition designers, the Eameses were also hugely influential communicators. For the first time ever, 'Eames on Design' brings together their collected words from magazine articles, television interviews, film scripts, personal letters and lectures. A huge undertaking, this project has involved painstakingly sifting through vast quantities of archival material held by the Eames family, the Eames Office and Herman Miller Inc. as well as the extensive collections of the Library of Congress and Vitra Design Museum - the resulting texts not only provide a clear understanding of the Eameses' design thinking but also give us a unique insight into them as people.
