The great designer Charles Eames was born in 1907 in St. Louis, Missouri America. He went to Washington University and studied architecture. In 1940, he and Eero Saarinen won first prize for their joint entry in the competition ‘Organic Design in Home Furnishings’ organised by the New York Museum of Modern Art. Not to mention in the same year Eames became head of the department of industrial design at Cranbrook, and in 1941 he married his wife Ray Kaiser.
From 1941 to 1943, Charles and Ray Eames designed and developed stretchers and leg splints made of moulded plywood for the United States Navy. Equally important in 1946 they exhibited their experimental moulded plywood furniture at the New York Museum of Modern Art. The Herman Miller Company in Zeeland, Michigan, subsequently began to produce the Eames furniture designs.
Charles together with Ray participated in the 1948 ‘Low-Cost Furniture’ competition at MoMA. They built the Eames House in 1949 in Pacific Palisades, California. Their design and innovative use of materials made the House a mecca for architects and designers. Today, it is considered one of the most important post-war residences anywhere in the world.
