The film EAMES: The Architect and the Painter endeavors to peer inside Charles and Ray Eames’s collaboration, their marriage and the “Renaissance studio” they created in a gritty warehouse in Venice, California. Family members and design historians help guide the story, while interviews with the junior designers swept into the “24-7” world of “The Eamery” paint a fascinatingly complex picture of this husband and wife creative team. The film draws from a trove of archival material, primarily the stunning films and photographs produced in mind-boggling volume by Charles, Ray, and their staff during the hyper-creative forty years of the Eames Office.
