9780500283202: An Eames Primer (Architecture/Design Series)

Imbued with a strong core philosophy, Charles and Ray Eameses' work was very wide-ranging: from architecture and furniture to exhibition design and filmmaking. Eames Demetrios (grandson of Ray and Charles Eames) has written this introduction to their work. He shares anecdotes, previously unpublished photographs, and interviews with friends and colleagues of the Eameses. Also included is a directory of all Eames furniture, the manufacturers of these items through the years, and identification tips for collectors.

Review:

"Charles and Ray Eames were heroes to my generation of designers and I'm thrilled to say have once again become heroes to the present generation. The work of their office in all its variety is amazing and inspirational and demonstrates a real fascination with the detail of life. It is intensely human, charming, and kind. Their grandson, Eames Demetrios (I wish my mother had called me Eames), has documented his grandparents' life in great detail. It makes enthralling reading for any student of 20th-century creativity."--Terence Conran

"From 1942 the Office of Charles and Ray Eames grew like L.A. itself to a focal center in the widest world of design. This is the fascinating personal account of Charles and Ray and of scores of their talented associates who made it an atelier of our times, creating a charmed house of steel, a dozen museums, a hundred films, and myriad seats that welcome you in airports everywhere. Eames Demetrios sketches how the pair came together and shares experiences from his own childhood on to searching interviews with many articulate insiders, both light-hearted and profound."--Philip and Phylis Morrison

"The Eameses are handsome, they are a couple, they look sexy, smart, and happy. It's almost enough to understand their miracle. They don't create beauty and intelligence, they just transmit what they are. It's easy, coherent. There is a serenity. When they drive a motorcycle, it's to experience balance and the minimum. Every picture gives a clue. They offer us the elegance of their happy rigorness."--Philippe Starck
