Every few years the silver screen gives a nod to the world of architecture - Sketches of Frank Ghery (2005) or My Architect (2003). We now have the next addition to our movie library with 'Eames: The architect and the painter' a movie now playing about the lives and work of Charles and Ray Eames.
Charles and Ray Eames' work is synonymous with defining the American postwar aesthetic and they were a power couple in the world of industrial design. Their furniture is relatable, comfortable and beautiful. This movie is an amalgamation of archival short films they created as well as featuring interviews by former colleagues, friends and industry experts. It looks like it is going to be great, and now that it is open in NYC and LA I cannot wait to see it! Anyone having already seen it please let me know what you thought in the comment section.
