"Eames couple / Charles and Ray Eames is a god of the design world.They have made a difference in modern design fields such as architecture, furniture and industrial design. In addition to their unprecedented contribution to the design world, their romantic love stories are often very popular.



Charles· Eames was expelled from the university?


It is hard to imagine that the design tycoon had actually suffered such awkwardness.


Charles· Insam studied at the University of Washington when he was a young man. He also received scholarships. But because he was too obsessed with the modernist architect "Frank Lloyd Wright / Frank Lloyd Wright", his academic mentors were eventually irritated by him and he was expelled from the division two years after he entered school. door.


Charles captured the heart of the bud with a love letter.


Charles and Lei andIn 1940, he met at the Cranbrook Art School, where Charles was the Dean of the School of Industrial Design, and Lei was a student in the painting profession. They met because Charles and his friend "Ero Saarinen / Eero Saarinen" were preparing for the "Organic Design in Home Furnishings" competition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Lei was sent to assist them in drawing products. Sketches and models.


The two of them quickly sparked a spark.In May 1941, Charles and his ex-wife "Catherine Walman/Catherine Walman", who was fascinated by the bud, divorced and wrote the love letter mentioned above, officially proposing to the bud. Lei quickly agreed, and after a month they tied up. Their honeymoon trip was a road trip to Los Angeles, where they collected the tumbleweed on the way, and they later hung all the tumbleweeds in their homes.


In the bedroomFirst studio



When Charles and Lei moved to Los Angeles, they were fascinated and decided to build the studio in their apartment. Here they invented the first wood laminating machine- Anonymous "咔擦!机 / Kazam! Machine", Charles returned from his part-time MGM company to steal wood and glue every day, and then used his "scratch! machine" at home to do laminated wood board experiments.


Designed munitions for World War II



Prior to putting laminated wood technology into furniture design, the technology was first used to design leg splints for the transfer of wounded soldiers during World War II, and they also used this technology to create stretchers and experimental glider shells.


The new material of laminated wood is very powerful, light and cheap, and is advantageous for mass production. At the same time, due to the detachability of laminated wood products, transportation has become very convenient. Thousands of laminated wood products have been shipped to the front line. Until today, laminated wood products are still active in our lives.


Both a living room and an offices home


Eames’s residence was historian Pat· Kirkham / Pat Kirkham" is known as "Mundrian style composition on the grasslands of Los Angeles / Mondrian style on the Los Angeles grassland."


This home was built inIn 1947, the Eames and his wife personally designed it, which was originally part of the "Residential Case Study Experiment" conducted by the magazine "Art and Architecture". The design of the house uses new technologies and materials developed in World War II, and also applies the design language of “light” and “simple”. Each design strictly meets the real needs of the couple – that is, half-work and half-work, both The home is a studio, and the Eames spent their happy lives in this house.


When talking about the design of this home, the Eames said: "Designing this house is like a game, during which you can find many unexpected things. For me, this is the best exercise."

First person of "Immersion Theater"


The Eames couple are back in the morningIn the 1950s, I began to get involved in immersive cinema design, which was very advanced at the time.


In 1959, the couple were commissioned to produce a film for the promotion of American customs in Russia, which was called "America." The Eames split the film into seven screens, each of which screened native American photography in a quick-cut manner.


And in its other film, premiered inIn the "Science House" of 1962, the Eames used a curved elliptical screen, multi-screen, immersive picture and playback rhythm, perspective angle and speed coordinated playback, leaving the audience at that time indelible. impression.


Famous architectural historian Beatrice·Cromina / Beatriz Colomina" once commented: "The innovative technology of the Eames couple is not just to present a new way of viewing objects to the audience, but more often they can have many people already in their minds. The ambiguous impression of the new cinematic experience is modern."

Although most people think that the Eames themselves are the spokespersons of innovation, the Eames himself suggested that the designers be cautious and innovative. The Eames once said: "Designers often do bad things in the name of innovation."


The Eames strictly adhered to this principle and practiced it. They refused Budweiser’s request for redesign.Signs of huge commercial contracts. The couple thought about it for a few months, but eventually decided to refuse to sign the contract because he thought the existing logo was good enough and there was no good reason to redesign.


Designer who says no to "dress"


As they designed the home, the Eames were equally casual, but at the same time reflected their personality and taste on one side. Charles loves to wear neutral tones, open-collar clothes and loose pants, while buds like sports short-sleeved tops and bohemian swing skirts.


Their friend, film director "Billy· Wilder / Billy Wilder once commented on the couple's clothing: "Black Tie in the eyes of Charles (Black Tie, in the English context refers to the formal attire) is really a literal meaning of a black Tie"; the concept of dressing in the bud is to wear a clean ladies shirt."
