Daniel Ostroff has been researching and documenting, in great detail, the rich design contributions of Charles and Ray Eames for many years. His new book gives us an essential look at one specific family and the intimate effect of the Eames furniture on their living environment over many years.
It shows us how the Eames' furniture was originally intended to be used, not as expensive antique pieces but as affordable functional objects that contribute to a higher quality of life. The book itself offers a history lesson via an interview with James and Kenneth Valastro, who reminisce about their childhood memories of being surrounded by Eames furniture and objects.80pp hardbound, designed by Mark Thomson and written by Daniel Ostroff.
