Eames: The Architect & The Painter



Arguably the most important American designers of the 20th century, husband and wife team Ray and Charles Eames lived life with no boundaries. The duo met during WWII while working on the design of plywood splinters when they developed a construction technique to bend plywood, thus unlocking the key to mass-producing Charles Eames’ initial wooden chair design. The pair soon married and established the Eames Office, becoming personal and professional partners for life. 'Eames: The Architect & The Painter' chronicles the quirky, kooky and playful life of the husband and wife duo responsible for developing the founding principles of modernism. An absolute must see documentary for anyone curious about art and design, or interested in watching a compelling story of two creative minds that become one.
