Widely admired for his prolific and varied design work, ranging from architecture to his celebrated chairs, American designer Charles Eames had a profound influence on industrial design in the 20th century. This striking documentary takes a detailed look at Eames, whilst also acknowledging the far-reaching impact his artist wife Ray had on his life and work. Drawing on a wealth of archive material and new interviews with colleagues, friends and experts, the film sheds a fascinating light on the professional and personal lives of this iconic couple, while placing both of them in the wider context of their changing times.
