This documentary tells the story of husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames, considered of one of America’s most important designer teams.
In addition to profiling their designs, and how they complimented each other creatively, the film documents their achievements beyond the furniture they are well known for and the up and downs of their personal relationship.
Here is a trailer to the documentary.
And this, believe it or not, is Ice Cube’s tribute to the Eames. Who would have known that he is a huge architecture fan! His video is part of Pacific Standard Time, an initiative of the Getty Museum that has been going on in LA since last year. This year’s exhibits celebrate Southern California’s lasting impact on modern architecture with exhibitions and programs presented by seventeen area cultural institutions from April through July 2013.
