In honor of the centennial of Charles Eames’s birth, this beautifully designed book from the modern furniture mavens at Vitra is the ultimate publication on the iconic designs of Eames and his wife Ray. A tool for Vitra Inc.’s sales force – including luscious photos of the classic Eames designs in context and goodies like fabric swatches – it’s also an engaging and well-written monograph. Combining Charles’s architectural training and Ray’s passion for painting and sculpture, the work of this Southern California husband-and-wife team defines Mid-Century Modern for so many viewers. Their furniture, textiles and other work – still in production – are at once practical and playful, elegant and seductive, yet timeless and durable. With a handsome mix of personal snapshots, ergonomic line drawings and stunning color images of the furniture in real contemporary settings, this is the book for anyone who loves mid-century design.
