 Charles Eames & Ray Eames  设计师介绍

Charles Eames & Ray Eames Designer:Charles Eames & Ray Eames 

CHARLES and RAY EAMES were the dream couple of American design and are perhaps its greatest exponents. They were not only successful photographers, film makers and architects but also talented furniture designers.
CHARLES EAMES was born in 1907 in St. Louis, Missouri. After attending Washington University for two years and being thrown out for his advocacy of Frank Lloyd Wright, he began working in an architectural office. In 1930, Charles started his own architectural office. He began extending his design ideas beyond architecture and received a fellowship to Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, where he eventually became head of the design department.
RAY KAISER EAMES was born in Sacramento, California in 1912. She studied painting with Hans Hofmann in New York before moving on to Cranbrook Academy where she met and assisted Charles and Eero Saarinen.
Charles and Ray married in 1941 and moved to California where they continued their furniture design work with molding plywood. Charles’s first moulded plywood chair, designed in collaboration with Eero Saarinen for the Museum of Modern Art’s ‘Organic Design in Home Furnishings’ competition in 1940, was an instant success. The LCW (Lounge Chair Wood), with its rounded forms, is an example of the shift away from the angular Bauhaus style towards a functionalism that was tempered by more organic elements.
During the war they were commissioned by the Navy to produce molded plywood splints, stretchers and experimental glider shells. In 1946, Evans Products began producing the EAMESes' molded plywood furniture. Their molded plywood chair was called "the chair of the century" by the influential architectural critic Esther McCoy. Soon production was taken over by Herman Miller, Inc ., who continues to produce the furniture in the United States today. Vitra manufactures the furniture in Europe. In 1949, Charles and Ray designed and built their own home in Pacific Palisades, California as part of the Case Study House Program sponsored by Arts and Architecture Magazine. Their design and innovative use of materials made this house a mecca for architects and designers from all over the world. It is considered one of the most important post-war residences built anywhere in the world.
Over a period of forty prolific years they produced shelving systems, stackable chairs, folding sofas and multi purpose furniture as well as the iconic Lounge Chair and Ottoman, Aluminium Group Chair collection and Hang It All Coat Rack – all still manufactured as authorized originals under licence by Vitra. These are all noteworthy for their versatility and technological finesse.
The couple were to find themselves at the centre of an intellectual circle that was to redefine American design. Indeed, their work was so significant, that the Museum of Modern Art devoted a special exhibition to Charles EAMES in 1946. Ray’s contribution was for a long time ignored, as was her artistic career, which had its roots in the bohemian world of New York’s immigrants.
Charles died in St. Louis in 1978 and Ray survived him until her death in Sacramento, California in 1988.

Charles Eames & Ray Eames

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames ,1950

Back in production, we’re proud to reintroduce the Eames Molded Plastic Chair (1950) with wooden dowel legs. Working closely with the Eames Office to create these chairs, the Michigan-based Herman Miller, Inc. reengineered the dowel base for improved strength while staying true to the Eameses’ original design. Charles and Ray Eames created the DAW (dining height, armchair seat shell with wood base) as a later version of the shell chair designs they created for MoMA’s 1948 International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller.

The molded shells have high, flexible backs, deep seat pockets and waterfall seat edges that reduce pressure on the backs of thighs.

Originally stamped out of metal and later fiberglass, the shells are today made of a more ecologically supportable material, recyclable polypropylene.

While the materials have evolved, the comfort of these chairs has not changed.

Injection-molded batch-dyed recyclable polypropylene; solid maple dowels; black powder-coated wire.

 Armchair DAW 设计史回哞

全新的材料,尤其是那些有潜力以更少资源创造更多产品的新材料,始终吸引着职业生涯中的Charles和Ray Eames。正是这种材料的魅力创造了新颖的现代化家具,Eames Molded Plastic椅就是一个很好的例子。最初设计于1948年,这是第一款投入大规模生产的Eames Molded Plastic椅。

而目前市场上的Eames Molded Plastic椅,和原作的外形一模一样。仍然保留了不使用任何靠垫的特点,这与Eames提出的“材料应毫无保留地呈现在用户面前”的要求相符。事实上,这也是第一款不使用任何遮盖物的无缝Eames Molded Plastic椅。

同时,目前的Eames Molded Plastic椅也空前地优秀。例如,椅身材料采用了更具环保特点的高抗冲塑料。
