Eames House: Design for Living exhibition in Tokyo

Posted March 19, 2019

March 19 – May 30, 2019: Visit Gallery A-Quad for an exhibition exploring the Eames House’s rich history and the Foundation’s robust preservation plans for the future.

Eames House: Design for Living is currently on view at the corporate gallery for Takenaka, an architecture and construction company with a 600-year family history.

The exhibition focuses on the history of the Eames House, the home and studio that 20th-century design pioneers, Charles and Ray Eames, created for themselves in 1949. The show also explores the Eames Foundation‘s ongoing plans to restore and preserve this national historic landmark through its 250-Year Project in collaboration with the Getty Research Institute. Visitors have the opportunity to experience a model of the Eames House with interior furnishings that convey a sense of the space as lived in by Charles and Ray.

Free. Reservations required. Update: This event is now full.
