Charles and Ray Eames

Married in 1941, Charles and Ray Eames possessed a unique flair for design which justifiably secured their place in history as two of the most important and influential designers of the 20th Century. Together, they made exciting, groundbreaking and outstanding contributions to the fields of modern architecture, furniture design, graphic design and film.
