The groundbreaking designs of Charles and Ray Eames.

Vitra, the sole authorized and licensed manufacturer of Eames furniture and designs in Europe and the Middle East, published The Furniture of Charles and Ray Eames to celebrate Charles Eames’s 100th birthday in 2007.

Grouped into categories based on materials such as plywood, plastic, wire and aluminum, all of the Eames designs produced by Vitra are presented in detail. Reproductions of vintage photographs and documents accompany explanatory texts that provide in-depth information on the historical background and distinctive structural features of the furniture designs. Contemporary photographs illustrate the aesthetic quality of these objects. The active preservation of Charles and Ray Eames’ legacy is the subject of a dialogue between Rolf Fehlbaum, the Emeritus Chairman of Vitra, and Charles’ grandson Eames Demetrios, the present director of the Eames Office.
