Eames: The Architect and the Painter

Eames: The Architect and the Painter

Directed by Jason Cohn, Bill Jersey

The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America's most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind-bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys.

The relationship between Charles Eames and his wife Ray ignited a burst of design ingenuity whose impact on the world can still be felt over half a century later.

Fun story of two American architects who were also visual communicators, creating some of the first data visualizations of the information age.
