Eames: The Architect & The Painter
Directed by Jason Cohn, Bill Jersey.
Documentary directed by Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey. (2010)
The husband and wife team of Charles & Ray Eames were perhaps America’s most influential and important industrial designers. "The Best Of The Most For The Least" was the egalitarian slogan from which all of the Eames affordable mass produced designs flowed.
Charles trained as an architect and Ray was a painter and together they ran Studio 901 in Venice, California, a hive of activity and creativity. The film draws from a wide source of archival materials and talking heads as well as new interviews with friends, colleagues and experts.
Fascinating as individuals and admired for their creations, the Eames are best known for their furniture, but they were also forerunners in architecture, textile design and much more.
This film delightfully captures the personal story of Ray and Charles Eames and their rise to iconic status.
