Eames Office | Charles & Ray Eames

Today, the Eames Office (with a team that includes their grandchildren) works to preserve and extend founders Charles and Ray Eames’ work as well as to create new works. Starting in 1943, the office of Charles and Ray Eames was highly influential and contributed significantly to the development of both modern architecture and furniture, staffing notable designers under the philosophy of “learning by doing” when brainstorming on new ideas. More than producing furniture, the Eames Office worked and continues to work to create and showcase art, textiles, graphic design, multimedia and film, exhibitions, and toys.
