About Charles and Ray Eames

Perhaps the most influential collaboration in design history, the husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames helped to create new concepts in furniture for a modern century. Exploring new techniques and materials like molded wood, fiberglass-reinforced plastic, and bent wire, they created affordable furniture for the likes of Herman Miller, which have since become iconic pieces in design history. Their California studio was a laboratory where their team constantly refined and revised their experiments, reducing furniture to its most essential forms—as was the Pacific Palisades home they created as one of the famous Case Study Houses. “The details are not details,” said Charles. “They make the product.” In addition to furniture, they created toys, films, videos, and textiles.
