The World of Charles and Ray Eames

The World of Charles and Ray EamesWhat makes Oakland’s exhibition different—and worthwhile—is the personalized frame of reference. Today, the Eames’ work is universal—but “The World of Charles and Ray Eames” shows how influential California was as a backdrop for the designers’ idealistic experimentations.

Fueled by their belief in design as a way of life, the innovative husband and wife duo Charles and Ray Eames were two of the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Go beyond their most well-known designs in this intimate and inspiring exhibition portraying their legacy and lives in California.

The Eameses—who founded The Eames Office—valued knowledge and discovery, embraced the joy of trial and error, and saw no separation between life and work. Through multi-media installations, films, rare prototypes, photography, furniture, toys, products, as well as personal letters, drawings, and artwork, discover the story of the Eameses from a fresh perspective. Explore the breadth of their work across many fields in this interactive exhibition that brings their ideas and playful spirit to life.

There is an additional $4 charge for this special exhibition in addition to regular museum admission.
