Charles Eames
(1907-1978)studied architecture at the George Washington University in Saint Louis, Missouri, US, from 1924 to 1926. He opened his own office, but did not obtain much success.

In 1936 he asked some architectural advise to the architect and designer Eliel Saarinen of whom he became a close friend; subsequently he was offered by him a fellowship at the Cranbrook Academy in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, US. There he had the opportunity to interact with important designers like Eliel Saarinen himself, his son Eero Saarinen, and Harry Bertoia. He also had the opportunity to meet the designer and painter Ray Kaiser with whom in 1941 got married and undertook important design projects that led to the foundation of the Eemes Office, the creative workshop in which the couple established their professional activity.

In 1940 with Eliel and Eero Saarinen, Charles Eames submitted an innovative piece of furniture realised in moulded plywood to a competition sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art. The creation received two awards and attracted the attention of the design company Herman Miller. Charles Eemes, in partnership with Ray Eames, began a commercial collaboration with the company. The objective was the creation of furniture pieces designed in accordance with Herman Miller's mass production manufacturing techniques, and gifted with the virtue of appealing to a vast public.
