Charles Eames (1907-1978) – Chairs and Furniture Design
Charles Eames is considered as one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. He was born in St Louis, Missouri. Perhaps decorated as the finest American designer of his generation, Eames was heavily influenced by his Uncle’s workings, the great architect William S. Eames.
Despite a healthy education studying architecture at Washington University in St. Louis, Charles Eames best began to put his ideas into motion whilst working as a labourer at the Laclede Steel Company in the town of his birth. Here, he inherited first-hand knowledge and experience about engineering, drawing, and architecture, learning moulding and treatment techniques he would later become famous for.
Both Charles Eames and his wife Ray are still heavily celebrated on an international scale, especially for their work in the field of modern furniture like the DSW chair. Both collaborated on numerous projects, earning them the AIA Twenty-five Year Award in 1977 and the prestigious Royal Gold Medal Award in 1979, a year after Charles passed away. Their work is still showcased at MoMA in New York, whilst in 1985 IDSA accredited Eames as The Most Influential Designer of the 20th Century. (wikipedia)
The duo is world-renowned for the Eames Chairs, especially for the Eames Office Chairs and the Eames Dining Chairs, but also for their industrial and interior design and photographic arts. Below you find more details and information about the furniture. Furthermore, have a look at the details of the Eames Style Furniture and the replica chairs which you can order in our online shop.
