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”).
