Designers

Designers Charles and Ray Eames emerged as Modern-era leaders for their work in architecture and modern furniture design in the 1950s. The Eames pioneered plywood, fiberglass and plastic resin and wire mesh technologies ingeniously incorporated into their pioneering furniture design. In addition to furniture design, 
Charles and Ray channeled a passion for photography into the production of short films. From their first film, the unfinished Traveling Boy in 1950, to Powers of Ten, released in 1977, their cinematic work was an outlet for ideas, a vehicle for experimentation and education. The Eames' career spanned four decades, and were major contributors to the Modern design movement. Their pioneering designs included their iconic molded-plywood dining chair, Eames Lounge Chair, the Eames Chaise and Eames Rocker.
