Summary
Charles and Ray Eames, perhaps the most famous American design partnership of the twentieth century, did pioneering work in furniture and exhibition design, in architecture, and in filmmaking. Out of respect for Charles' wishes, no book on them was published while either partner was alive. In this volume Pat Kirkham interprets their careers in depth, probing the lives behind the designs and the nature of the collaboration. In researching this major book, Kirkham had full access to the Eames archive and cooperation from the Eameses' clients and associates. The result is a richly detailed study of these remarkable designers and of their work from 1941 to 1978, including a substantial reevaluation of Ray's role
