Design Q&A

FF_QAs(Db)19

1972

This film is an exploration of Charles and Ray’s design philosophy.  

In 1969, curator Madame L’Amic of the Musée Arts Decoratifs in Paris, asked five international designers participating in the exhibition Qu’est ce que le design? (What Is Design?) to answer a series of questions about their field.

Three years later, the Eameses transferred slides to film to make Design Q&A, which shows images of furniture, toys, exhibitions, films, and graphics created over the years by the Eames Office.  

The voiceover features Charles answering the questions posed by L’Amic about his and Ray’s design process.
