An Eames Primer

  • Comment
Review

This cannot count as a critical assessment of Charles and Ray Eames'achievements; the author, Eames Demetrios, is, after all, their grandson. But, comprehensive, well-illustrated, and drawing on interviews with members of the Eames office, it is an informative tribute to their output and creative interaction. 'They offer us the elegance of their happy rigorness'(sic), says Philippe Starck in his blurb on the back - whatever that means. Pictured is a detail of Think , the Eames'presentation in the IBM pavilion at the New York's World Fair in 1964-65.

It dazzled viewers with images on 22 screens.

By Eames Demetrios. Thames & Hudson, 2001. 272pp. £15.95
