The American designers, Charles and Ray Eames, changed the face of modern furniture design. The Eames' revolutionary use of materials such as plastics, wood and metal transformed the furniture industry in the years after World War II, injecting it with a fresh, modern approach. From their base in California, the couple became the stars of the design world, creating many classic items of furniture for the Herman Miller Co. In 1949, they constructed their own house in Pacific Palisades, a building that remains a benchmark for modern architecture. This book celebrates the lives and work of this brilliant pair and features more than fifty stunning photographs of their work.
