Book Description

25 Nov 2005 Eames
Nothing says modernist perfection like an Eames design. Though they are best known to the general public for their furniture, the husband and wife duo of Charles and Ray Eames (1907-78 and 1912-88, respectively) were also forerunners in the fields of architecture, industrial design, photography, and film. This book covers all the aspects of their illustrious career, from the earliest furniture experiments and molded plywood designs to the Case Study Houses to their work for Herman Miller and films such as the seminal short, "Powers of Ten".

Gorgeous presentation and cover. Well layed out. I was a bit disapointed because it has a lot of pictures but only one page on the Eames Lounge chair (amd a fan and proud owner). Definitely worth a buy and read, great coffee table book. Unseen pictures of Eames's prototypes are great too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compact look at a huge subject 23 Oct 2012
These little Taschen books continue to deliver a great introduction to the main themes and developments of Ray and Charles Eames. Great if you want a budget (or portable!) introduction to their work, but I fell in love with their infectious creativity and bought Eames Design: The Work of the Office of Charles and Ray Eames this book as well (which is beautiful and not portable!).
