An Eames Anthology
by Daniel Ostroff

An Eames Anthology collects for the first time the writings of the esteemed American architects and designers Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames, illuminating their marriage and professional partnership of 50 years. More than 120 primary-source documents and 200 illustrations highlight iconic projects, such as the Case Study Houses and the molded plywood chair, as well as their work for major corporations as both designers (Herman Miller, Vitra) and consultants (IBM, Polaroid). Previously unpublished materials appear alongside published writings by and about the Eameses and their work, lending new insight into their creative process. Correspondence with such luminaries as Richard J. Neutra and Eero Saarinen provides a personal glimpse into the advance of modernity in mid-century America. Ostroffis also the author ofModern Classic: The Eames Plastic Chair(Neenah Paper/The Eames Office, 2006, with Eames Demetrios),Eames + Valastro(The O Team, 2011), andCollecting Eames(JF Chen, 2011).He was consulting curator for “Eames Words” and curator of “Collecting Eames: The JF Chen Collection.”
