News: “Essential Eames: Icons of 20th Century Design” at Bangkok

Charles and Ray Eames are credited with “changing the way we sit” by the The Washington Post. A closer look at the Eames’ philosophy and work demonstrates they did much more, leaving an indelible mark on contemporary lifestyle and revolutionizing furniture construction and design.
“Essential Eames: Icons of 20th Century Design” is currently showing at the Thailand Creative Design Center (TCDC) in Bangkok, Thailand. Based on the book An Eames Primer by Eames Demetrios, the couple’s grandson, this exhibition is not to be missed.
“Essential Eames” does a remarkable job charting the endeavours of an intellectually adventurous couple who never tired of exploration and creation. With over 90 pieces of furniture and 125 original film and photographs on display, the exhibition covers architecture, furniture, design, film, toys and philosophy in various interactive zones.
