Their chairs are classics of modern design, but the innovative husband and wife team, Charles and Ray Eames, also made groundbreaking contributions to architecture, industrial design, documentary film-making, and design thinking.

From their studio in Los Angeles, Charles and Ray developed a design philosophy that continues to resonate with 21st century designers.
