This site is “A Virtual Encyclopedia of all things Eames.” This is the latest manifestation of the mission of the Eames Office:
“The Eames Office is dedicated to communicating, preserving and extending the work of Charles and Ray Eames. We feel that all three of those dimensions are important to keeping the office useful and vital. We believe that all of Charles and Ray’s work was the result of a way of looking at the world—a design philosophy and process that is worth sharing in many different dimensions. We also believe that creating wholly new works is as consistent with that philosophy as restoring and distributing classic ones.”
Many people have already helped tremendously to get this website launched, and these contributors are acknowledged alongside their contributions. This will always be a collaborative effort: museums, scholars, collectors, students and all interested parties are welcomed to the table, as we work together to create the most comprehensive and accurate source of Eames information. Here are links to an interview in which I explain some of the ideas that informed the creation of this site, and my general views about Eames scholarship. Daniel Ostroff, Producer and Editor.
