Ray and Charles Eames

The Eames' are two of the most prolific figures in 20th century design and architecture. Ray and Charles were partners in life through marriage and in work through the Eames Office. As was often the case for women in the mid 20th century, Ray was often overlooked and not given proper credit for her impacts within the Eames Office, though many voices who worked for the Eames Office make clear that she played as great a role in design as Charles. Labels from Herman Miller in the 1950s and 1960s state "Designed by Charles Eames," overshadowing both Ray and the designers who were so impactful within the Eames Office otherwise at that time.
