Charles Eames (1907-1978) studied architecture at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. When designing furniture for MoMa as a project, he met Ray (1912-1988), who also studied at Cranbrook. Charles and Ray Eames married in 1941 and lived in California. They were the dream couple in American design and are some of the biggest icons. In addition to being talented furniture designers, they were also successful photographers, filmmakers and architects. The Eames house in Los Angeles from 1949 was the couple's residence and is now a design landmark, museum and mecca for design lovers. Their most iconic design classic was the Lounge Chair, which is loved by all who love modern furniture. Their international career spans 40 years, where the couple produced shelving systems, dining tables, chairs, sofas and more. Their career really got underway after World War II.
Their practical and elegant style is still popular today and their designs are still produced according to the original method. The World Design Congress named the couple the most influential designers of the 20th century thanks to their exceptional ability to innovate in terms of material choices and concept solutions.
