100 Quotes by Charles Eames

Posted October 8, 2013

In celebration of the centennial year of Charles Eames, the Eames Office, in collaboration with Herman Miller, complied 100 quotes by the legendary designer into a book.


Although Charles Eames wrote very little in the way of formal books or articles, he did have a remarkable facility with the spoken word. His lectures were as much a part of his body of work as other, perhaps more well know, products of the Eames Office.

It seemed fitting to gather his words—taken from articles, books, films, interviews, lectures, notes and office files—and present select ones together.

Because the Herman Miller community encompasses a large part of the world, each quote is offered in 7 languages: English, Complex Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Hindi, Brazilian, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Perfect for any design lover, 100 Quotes by Charles Eames is available for purchase in the Eames Shop.
