The Films of Charles and Ray Eames: Volume 4


SKU: 40041 In Stock

Take a peek into the creative collective of Charles and Ray Eames.

“The Eames Films are the Eames Essays.”
If you had only one film to see on design, it should be Design Q&A, the lead off film on this volume. Charles Eames concisely answers a series of questions by Madame L’Amic of the Musée des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. Two other key films in the Eames pantheon are in this volume: Goods, an excerpt from Charles’ Norton lectures in Poetry, the only available version of an Eames 3-screen slide show, and SX-70, an introduction to a camera that becomes a meditation on the nature of photography. Other gems on this volume are Fiberglass Chairs, Copernicus, and the IBM Math Peep Shows.

Charles & Ray Eames


Above their role as furniture designers, Charles and Ray were communicators and educators. Museum exhibitions and World’s Fairs were avenues for the Eameses to reach the public masses, teaching about varied subjects like mathematics, technology, design, astronomy, geography, time, and culture. In all locations as well as within the walls of 901 Washington Boulevard, the films they made played a large part in their philosophy and design process. Whether the films were made for IBM, as proposals for airports, national aquariums or an exploration of patterns on a blacktop, the films by Charles and Ray Eames are some of the greatest tools they have left for us.
