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.
