Description

Through models, material studies, prototypes and production examples of the Eames estate held at the Vitra Design Museum, the Eames Furniture Sourcebook aims to reconstruct the genesis of the most relevant furniture designs by Charles and Ray Eames and shed light on their influence on the development of new and innovative materials. New insights in thinking processes and work practices of this legendary designer couple are revealed, designers whose work was driven by philosophical ideals that privileged knowledge, discovery and discipline, and embraced the potential of technology and science for the common good.

Daniel Ostroff is the author of An Eames Anthology, Modern Classic, Eames + Valastro, and Collecting Eames. He was consulting curator for Eames Words and curator of Collecting Eames: The JF Chen Collection, both for The Getty Museum's Pacific Standard Time Consortium.
