The husband/ wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America's most important designers. Best remembered for their plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind-bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded soldiers to photography, interiors, graphics, games, films and toys.
The relationship between Charles Eames and his wife Ray ignited a burst of design ingenuity whose impact on the world can still be felt over half a century later.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. Narrated by James Franco, Eames: The Architect and the Painter is the first film since their death dedicated to these creative geniuses and their work.
