Eames World


Charles and Ray Eames inspired us to appreciate the world by honoring “the uncommon beauty of common things.”This exhibit used the words of Charles and Ray Eames to focus on the lesser-known aspects of their lives, revealing their appreciation of the value of humble objects and useful tools. Their insights about the simple pleasures of daily life were illustrated with objects and materials available during their lifetimes and contemporary examples from the world around us.From tumbleweed to strawberries, a bolt of cloth to a keg of nails, to elephants in India and the bread of Scandinavia, the whole world was their canvas. The technologies they used (and often invented) to record their appreciation, were the most advanced of their time.The informal “assemblage” showed an aspect of Charles and Ray’s lives that enchanted everyone lucky enough to know them.
