Museum, Gallery, Schaudepot, Feuerwehrhaus: An Eames Celebration

30.09.2017 - 25.02.2018

Charles and Ray Eames are among the most important designers of the 20th century. They designed innovative furniture and other industrial products, films, books, exhibitions, multi-media installations, interiors and much more. "An Eames Celebration" will present a series of exhibitions and events, that will be the largest exploration of the Eames's work that has ever been shown in a museum, coinciding with Charles Eames' 110th birthday. The estate of Charles & Ray Eames -- which has been in the holdings of the Vitra Design Museum since 1988 --- will be made accessible to the public. The main exhibition "Charles & Ray Eames. The Power of Design" in the Gehry building will be at the centre of this Eames season. Conceived as an exhaustive retrospective, it shows the many facets of Charles and Ray Eames's work and comprises objects from collections all over the world. Exhibition curated and organised by the Barbican Centre, London.
