Ray & Charles Eames

Charles and Ray Eames on a Velocette Motorcycle (1948).

You can't get too far when researching collaboration before running into the powerhouse couple of Ray and Charles Eames. Widely known for their Herman Miller furniture designs, Ray and Charles made some of the biggest creative contributions to the design of the 20th Century.

Since we're fans of all things Eames (yes, we own a chair or two), we recently popped some popcorn and settled in to watch the biopic Eames: The Architect And The Painter.

What really stood out to us was how Ray and Charles blended their two seemingly disparate passions. Charles was an architect. He was analytical, studied, and precise. Ray a painter. She was spirited, colourful, and inspired. Together, they were unstoppable. Together their work was greater than they were individually.

While Charles worked on the technical areas of their designs, Ray added the finishing touches of creativity that launched the Eames Office forever into the world of pop culture.

Being a creative couple ourselves, we are inspired by their methods. Ray and Charles fed their creativity by jumping into cinematography and photography as further outlets. Many employees in the biopic talked about the Eames Office being much like Disneyland. It goes without mention that the ability to explore different areas of creativity enabled everyone that worked at the Eames Office to really stretch their minds and learn and grow.

Now that inspires us!

Eventually everything connects — people, ideas, objects… the quality of the connections is the key to quality per se.

Oh, and our little boy loves Eames too.

    I absolutely love their designs and have purchased a reproduction eames lounge chair a couple years ago from Emfurn. Now that I have a bit of money, I can go all in and buy the authentic from Herman Miller. I also love how great they were as a couple. It's very admirable. :)

    Fighting such a pathology should be done with the help of correction feeding and special procedures so that water does not stay tissues.
