Vitra Design Museum
The Eameses times four
Vitra Design Museum celebrates the 100th anniversary of Charles Eames and his brilliant designs. Disavowing the belief there is nothing left to say about design’s “power couple”, it gathers under a single title (“An Eames Celebration”, until 24.2.2018) four exhibitions on four different yet complementary aspects of their work: a major retrospective (“Charles & Ray Eames. The Power of Design”); around 100 films of theirs (“Ideas and Information. The Eames Films”); kids’ designs (“Play Parade. An Eames Exhibition for Children”) and experimental furnishing projects (“Kazam! The Furniture Experiments of Charles & Ray Eames”).
