Full Description
Best known for their contributions to architecture, furniture design, industrial design, film and photography, Charles and Ray Eames remain among the most renowned American designers of the twentieth century. In 1946, Evans Products began producing the Eames molded plywood furniture. Their iconic molded plywood chair was called the chair of the century by the influential architectural critic Esther McCoy. In 1949, Charles and Ray designed and built their own home in Pacific palisades, their design and imaginative use of materials making this house a mecca for architects and designers internationally. After the war, the Eameses continued to create new furniture designs, such as the Fiberglass Chairs, 1959; the famous Lounge Chair and Ottoman in 1956; the Time Life stool from 1960; the 3473 sofa, 1964; and the seating for Dulles and O'Hare airports, a design still in use in lounges around the world today.
