The furniture designs of Charles and Ray Eames continue to inspire questions. Why is their furniture still in production, still in demand, inspiring and timeless? Combining Charles's architectural training with Ray's passion for painting and sculpture, their talents melded to create furniture that is at once practical and playful yet with an eye towards durability of material and the timelessness of design. These objects reveal the expressive possibilities of modern components while accommodating fundamental human needs. All of these "classic" Eames elements are lusciously produced in this new publication, which, amazingly, was designed as a sales tool to the trade. Mixed with personal snapshots, ergonomic line drawings, and stunning color images of the furniture in actual contemporary settings, this is the one Eames publication to have-simple, but completely encompassing.
