“The details are not the details. They make the design.”
EAMES is a unique dance vision of two legendary artists and designers: Ray and Charles Eames. Informed by their explosive originality, EAMES explores the crucible that was the 1950’s in America. The design of our living rooms – and of our relationships – still feels the influence of the fearless painter and the charismatic architect who passionately loved their art…and each other.
