Eames House Series: I. Studio Tools


SKU: 83002 In Stock

Work, play and life intersected at the Eames House Studio.

This image, “Studio Tools,” is the first in a series of four film stills featured at the 2021 Isetan exhibition in Tokyo, Japan. The  stills originate from the 1955 film, “House: After Five Years of Living,” which illustrated details of Charles and Ray Eames’ Case Study House through an experimental method of turning still images into moving film.

In their newly built home, the Eameses were able to find the rare sweet spot between work and play in their lives. In the aptly named Eames House, they built the studio that would become an important staple of their lives — the studio would frequently double as a film set to their office. This simple image of a set of studio tools is a symbolic representation of the quiet intimacy of everyday items. 

This image is now being released for the first time as a print for public purchase. Limited run of 100 numbered copies with Certificateof Authenticity.

Charles Eames


Charles and Ray Eames used photography as they did their films, to better understand the product, the project, the situation at hand, and then to see if their understanding of it changed with each photograph.  Close looking from every angle -- what Eames Demetrios wrote in his book, An Eames Primer, as "Charles and Ray took quite seriously the lessons learned from Eliel and Eero Saarinen of trying something out over and over."
