Fibonacci: Growth and Form

DATE - 1972

Charles and Ray’s genuine interest in science and mathematics continually surfaced in their work. As a result, the Eames Office integrated these themes into a series of commissioned IBM exhibitions, some of which also celebrated seasonal holidays.

Additional Information

The Eames Office organized Fibonacci in honor of spring and the mathematical patterns inherent in the season’s new growth. Leonardo Fibonacci’s numerical sequence states that each succeeding number is the sum of the two numbers immediately preceding it. Fibonacci included text, diagrams, and photographs of plant life taken by Charles, Ray, and Eames Office staff members. In addition, the Eameses filled the exhibition space with clusters of lush flowers and potted plants.

Fibonacci opened in 1972 at the IBM Corporate Exhibit Center in New York City and later traveled to other institutions nationwide.
