About Charles and Ray Eames
Charles and Ray Eames’ designs were a colorful, ergonomic, and even cozy approach to modern furniture. They pioneered the use of new materials—molded plywood and fiberglass chairs, desks and storage units set on wire frames—challenging old ideas about what furniture should be made of. They met in 1940 at the Cranbrook Academy of Art where Charles intended to study industrial design and Ray was an aspiring abstract painter. They collaborated with Eero Saarinen on a molded plywood chair for MoMA’s Organic Furniture Competition. During World War II, the Eameses were commissioned by the Navy to develop splints and stretchers using their molded plywood technique.
After the war, they established the Eames Office in Venice, California, and their prototypes became a product in 1946 when Herman Miller introduced the Eames molded plywood chair. With innovative touches like rubber shock absorbers, it seemed to anticipate its user’s comfort. In 1956, they introduced the Lounge Chair and Ottoman. Their riff on a leather club chair, Charles and Ray Eames’ lounge chair remains a beloved piece of 20th-century furniture.
