Abstract:

James Franco narrates this documentary about husband-and-wife design duo Charles and Ray Eames. Widely regarded as America's most important modern designers, they are perhaps best remembered for their mid 20th-century plywood and fibreglass furniture, although the Eames Office also created many other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II to photography, interiors, multimedia exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. This film also looks at the Eames's personal lives and their influence on the development of modernism and the rise of the computer age.
