About Charles and Ray Eames

Born in Missouri in 1907, Charles Eames developed his interest in engineering and architecture at a young age. He attended Washington University in St Louis on a scholarship for two years, before working in an architectural office. By 1930, he had started his own office, and began extending his ideas beyond architecture to include design and manufacture.

Ray was born in Sacramento, California in 1912, and studied painting with Hans Hofmann in New York before moving on to the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, where she met Charles. It was here that Charles, along with his then partner Eero Saarinen, won two first prizes at the Organic Furniture Competition with designs that moulded plywood into complex curves.

After marrying in 1941, Charles and Ray became an unstoppable duo. During the Second World War, they were commissioned by the US Navy to produce moulded plywood splints, glider shells and stretchers. By 1946, Evans Products had begun producing the pair’s furniture pieces, and in 1956 the iconic Eames Lounge Chair was named “the chair of the century” by influential architectural critic Esther McCoy. It was not long after this that production of these pieces was taken over by Herman Miller, Inc.
