The World of Charles & Ray Eames Exhibition
This fantastic exhibition is on from 21 October 2015 - 14 February 2016, in the Barbican Art Gallery. Obviously we are bursting with pride as this show launched in London, and as long-time licensees of Eames, knowing the family members and team well, we also know what a great deal has gone into making this incredible event happen.
Some of our Eames licensed products have been chosen for the show gift shop and are selling like hot cakes-so please go and see the show and of course, ahem, exit through the gift shop...
Charles and Ray Eames are among the most influential designers of the 20th century. Enthusiastic and tireless experimenters, this husband and wife duo moved fluidly between the fields of photography, film, architecture, exhibition-making, and furniture and product design.
The Eames Office was a hub of activity where the Eameses and their collaborators produced an array of pioneering designs, communicating their ideas with a boundless creativity that defined their careers. The Eameses embraced the joy of trial and error and approached design as a way of life.
From personal letters, photographs, drawings and artwork, to their products, models, multi-media installations and furniture, The World of Charles and Ray Eames includes not only the designs for which they are best known, but provides an insight into the lives of the Eameses, the Eames Office and the breadth of their pioneering work, bringing their ideas and playful spirit to life.
Please do go along to view a show that brings many objects together for the very first time, from collections far and wide.
