Eames: The Architect And The Painter Reviews
"Eames: The Architect and the Painter" es un estupendo documental que no solo nos adentra en la maravillosa obra de esta pareja sino tambien nos brinda un perfil psicologico de la dinamica en su estudio y sus trabajadores (ademas de detalles intimos como sus relaciones extramaritales). Una obra obligatoria para diseñadores y arquitectos. Muy recomendable.
A story fascinating couple that gives great insight into the world of design the 60â(TM)s. Charles and Ray Eames (Husband and Wife design team) for changing the way the world looks at furniture and placed Herman Miller on the map. Beyond their work in furniture, their multimedia and film work pushes the boundaries of technology and leads the world to way web based information is presented (before the PC).
The story focuses on their professional work and cast a purposefully blind eye on their personal life. In the end, I had more questions than answers. The culture of the time cast Charles as the Leader of his studio and Ray as a supporting character (instead of equal characters).
The majority of the story is told by their designers many who went on to become important designers in their own right. However they focus only the work surroundings and some seem a little bitter. I would have like to hear more from their contemporaries friends and family.
