an Eames anthology – Daniel Ostroff

an_eames_anthology_edited_by_ostroffAn Eames anthology collects for the first time the writings, both unpublished and previously published, of the esteemed American architects and designers Charles and Ray Eames, illuminating their marriage and professional partnership of fifty years. More than 120 primary-source documents and 200 illustrations highlight iconic projects such as the Case Study Houses and the molded plywood chair, as well as their work for major corporations as designers (Herman Miller, Vitra) and consultants (IBM, Polaroid). Correspondence with such luminaries as Richard Neutra and Eero Saarinen provides a personal glimpse into modernity in mid-century America.
