Charles and Ray

Charles and Ray EamesCharles and Ray Eames are well-known for their contributions to furniture and industrial design, films, exhibitions, toys and architecture. They approached problem solving as an adventure, combining discipline with a sense of play. Together with the multi-talented Eames Office staff, the pair set a standard for design excellence that still inspires current generations.

Come visit us at the Eames House… and gain a greater understanding of the Eameses’ work. As Eames Demetrios, Chairman of the Board, wrote in An Eames Primer: “The journey of creating this house—and the finished product—resonate with many of the themes of their other work: the guest/host relationship, the honest use of materials, universalizing from the specific, and, above all, the learn-by-doing process.”

Eames Diagram of DesignCharles once said, “Eventually everything connects—people, ideas, objects… the quality of the connections is the key to quality per se… I don’t believe in this ‘gifted few’ concept, just in people doing things they are really interested in doing. They have a way of getting good at whatever it is”.

We are delighted to share the joy and philosophy of Charles and Ray Eames and to preserve the Eames House for future generations to delight in.
