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 mindbending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. But their personal lives and influence on significant events in American life - from the development of modernism, to the rise of the computer age - has been less widely understood.

Interesting documentary but I really think it's not focused enough on everything that Eames did. It's a good overview for someone that doesn't not much about Charles and Ray.Published on February 10, 2013 by Dog Friendly
