Charles Eames – Architect & Designer

Charles Eames was born in 1907 in St. Louis, Missouri.  In 1938 he accepted a fellowship at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Cranbrook, Michigan.  By 1940 he, along with Eero Saarinen were designing furniture and won a competition at the New York’s Museum of Modern Art.  Their work consisted of new and innovative techniques of molding plywood. Besides chairs and other furniture, this team would go on to design splints and stretchers during World War II.

In 1941, Charles married Ray Kaiser, another student at Cranbrook and moved to Los Angeles, California.  Together this team went on to design more chairs and other furniture, but are more renowned for designing and building the Eames House, which was constructed on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  The house was constructed of prefabricated steel parts and is still considered a milestone of modern architecture.  Charles died in St. Louis in 1978 and Ray continued their work until she passed in 1989.
