The Gifted Eye of Charles Eames: a portfolio of 100 images


What: The Gifted Eye of Charles Eames Exhibit will open at the Smart Furniture Studio in Chattanooga, Tennessee on February 4th. Smart Furniture will host a reception for the exhibit which will feature a presentation by Eames Demetrios, principal of the Eames Office and grandson of Charles and Ray Eames. Charles Eames, together with his wife and design partner, Ray Eames, are among the most influential American designers of the 20th Century. They are best known for their groundbreaking contributions to furniture design, architecture, industrial design and manufacturing, textiles, and the photographic arts. For the Eameses, and particularly Charles, photography was not merely a way to record things; it was a part of the process of design. Charles had an incredible eye for detail and this is evident in his photography. This exhibition represents the first time Charles Eames’ photography has been truly celebrated on its own. These rarely seen photos feature the many facets of Charles and Ray’s life, work and travels. To choose a mere 100 images from such a massive body of work was a daunting task. All are archival images; most have not been published. In combination, each gives a taste of all: furniture, house, projects, travel, and people.
When: Beginning February 4th at 6pm
Where: Smart Furniture Studio, 2 North Shore, 313 Manufactures Road, Suite 107
