Charles and Ray Eames gave shape to America's 20th century. From the 1940s to the late 1970s, the Los Angeles-based husband-and-wife team designed furniture, buildings, toys, films, graphics, exhibitions, and books that aimed to improve society--not only functionally, but culturally and intellectually as well. This title includes six generously illustrated essays that examine the couple's projects in the contexts of science, corporate patronage, politics, and modern design. 200 illustration, 150 in full color.
