The Story of Eames Furniture…

Having been in close proximity to Charles and Ray Eames as well as the members of the Eames Office and their patron manufacturers for almost 30 years, the Neuharts had the extraordinary opportunity to absorb their stories. At their Los Angeles home, they tell the tale of working with Charles Eames in Gestalten.tv’s latest look behind the Eames.

  1. Thumbs up! Thanks for posting this. I think modernism/functionalism is very easy to relate to as an engineer – particularly anyone engaged in design. Although the world of an engineer is much more physics and organization and such (as opposed to something more artistic/aesthetic like furniture design) – there are still those fundamental elements of making a good problem statement and the obsession over the details of execution (something not really a part of pure science).

    Reminds me a bit of the movie “Helvetica.” Worth a view if anyone out there hasn’t seen it.
