Product description


We ought to be grateful that instead of the hagiography we might expect of such a sumptuous book, it presents the warts-and-all view from inside the studio... By giving the Eames Office rank and file their curtain call, it usefully explodes idea of the designer as a solitary genius, which has always been a myth. --Justin McGuirk, The Guardian

This is my favorite design book of 2010. Yes, it's huge!...The quality and quantity of records is extraordinary. --Bill Moggridge, Director of Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, New York

This book has been put together with almost the same attention to detail as a piece of Eames furniture! --Jasper Morrison

About the Author

The Story of Eames Furniture was written and designed by Marilyn Neuhart together with her husband John. Both worked with the Eames Office in various capacities from the 1950s until 1978, the year of Charles Eames s death. 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, Marilyn and John Neuhart had the extraordinary opportunity to absorb their stories. This book is a firsthand account of the Eames Office from within that meticulously portrays the history and development of Eames furniture based on the recollections of the Neuharts and those who worked closely with Charles Eames. More familiar with the material and protagonists than almost any other, Marilyn Neuhart has spent the last 15 years compiling the texts and images featured in this book.
