Charles Eames (1907-1978) was an American designer and architect, and one of the most influential names of modern American design. Eames studied architecture at University of Washington and, invited by the Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen, continued his studies at the Cranbrook Academy of Arts, Michigan in 1940. There he met Eliel Saarinen’s son Eero, with whom he participated - and won - a competition called ”Organic Design in Home Furnishing”, arranged by New York’s MoMA. In Cranbrook Charles Eames also met her future wife Ray, and the couple got married in 1941. Since then, Charles and Ray Eames worked as a designer couple and created new kind of plywood techniques and numerous iconic classics of modern design.
