Prolific furniture designers, filmmakers and exhibition designers, the Eameses were also hugely influential communicators.

Eames on Design brings together their collected words from magazine articles, television interviews, film scripts, personal letters and lectures. A huge undertaking, this project has involved painstakingly sifting through vast quantities of archival material held by the Eames family, the Eames Office and Herman Miller Inc. as well as the extensive collections of the Library of Congress and Vitra Design Museum. The resulting texts not only provide a clear understanding of the Eames design ethos but also give us unique insight into their personalities.

Their texts are illustrated with original photographs and drawings, many of which have never been published before. A landmark publication on two of the greatest designers of the twentieth century, Eames on Design is an essential design manifesto that is both inspiring and insightful.Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames met in Sacramento in 1941, and moved to Los Angeles shortly after, where they built the Eames House, a milestone of modern architecture, that was erected in a matter of days from prefabricated steel parts.

Formidably prolific and inventive, the Eameses made numerous technological innovations such as molded plywood and plastic resin chairs. In 1950 they began making educational and conceptually-driven films, designed exhibitions, and spawned several generations of designers from their L.A. studio. Charles was also very active as a photographer, and Ray as a textiles designer.
