Eames: The Architect and the Painter


The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely considered America’s most important designers. The work of Charles and Ray Eames remains for designers and consumers an ideal of design at its most virtuous – an alchemical combination of beauty and purpose. The “Eames Era,” which began in the optimistic flush of American victory in WWII, ended when Charles died in 1978. Yet their impact grows unabated.


  • Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey's sprightly documentary weighs its subjects' unique accomplishments and widespread influence while probing a relationship more complex than its sunny public face indicated.
    Dennis Harvey, VARIETY
  • Well-crafted and insightful. A must for those with an interest in modern design.
  • Lively, gratifying…appropriately busy and abundant: full of objects, information, stories and people, organized with hectic elegance.
    A. O. Scott, NEW YORK TIMES
