The Story of Eames Furniture

"This book has been put together with almost the same attention to detail as a piece of Eames furniture!" Jasper Morrison

There are two ways to learn the Eames story. The first one is told in unparalleled detail on 800 pages with more than 2,500 images at the "The Story of Eames Furniture" book by Gestalten and the second one is told in 16.08 minutes by Marilyn Neuhart, author of the book, and her husband John.
In this unique 2-volume, 800-page book with more than 2,500 images, Marilyn Neuhart tells the story — to paraphrase Charles Eames himself — of how Eames furniture got to be the way it is.
The Story of Eames Furniture is the benchmark reference on the subject. It is a biography — not of an individual person, but of arguably the most influential and important furniture brand of our time. Brimming with images and information, this 2-volume, 800-page book in a slipcase sheds new light on the context in which the furniture of Charles and Ray Eames was created. It documents in unparalleled detail how the design process in the Eames Office developed as well as the significant roles played by specific designers and manufacturers.
