About the Designers
Charles Eames & Ray Eames
Husband-and-wife design team Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames were among the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Their landmark contributions include furniture, architecture, film, and graphics. They were pioneers in the molding of plywood, which was developed from their experiments and projects for the U.S. Navy. Their association with the Museum goes back to 1940, with a joint entry with Eero Saarinen in the MoMA competition "Organic Design in Home Furnishings." Since then nearly 100 examples of their work have entered the Museum's design collection.
