The Eames chairs at the World of Charles and Ray Eames Exhibition at the Barbican

The World of Charles and Ray Eames

This week the team went to the eagerly anticipated exhibition The World of Charles and Ray Eames at the Barbican. The show on the third floor gallery, curated by the Barbican’s Catherine Ince, explores the seminal work of Charles and Ray Eames and the influential projects of the Eames Office through the presentation of letters, models, furniture, film and photography. For me, the most interesting part of the exhibition was discovering the scope of work Charles and Ray were involved with other than furniture and product design. The show covers the architectural projects, film making, graphics, art and sculptural design the couple produced through their lifetime. The show pays tribute to the celebrated designers work and the impact its had on many of our lives today.

The World of Charles and Ray Eames. Until 14 February 2016.
