Today in Web Design, we’re going to take a small diversion into the design part of web design, and look at the work of Charles and Ray Eames.
Charles and Ray Eames (The Eames Office) were among the most important designers working in middle of the 20th century. (They were a husband and wife team, not brothers, as many people often think.)
They did architecture, furniture (a very famous chair still made, called the Eames Chair), and educational films. Probably the most influential of those films was “The Powers of Ten,” a 1968 documentary that beautifully illustrates the scale of the universe in factors of ten.
Today we’ll look at a TED video by their grandson, Eames Demetrious, talking about “The Design Genius of Charles + Ray Eames.”
