If you are an interiors and design admirer like me, you may be interested in this documentary airing tonight on PBS.
Watch Charles & Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter on PBS. See more from American Masters.
The film, Charles & Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter, features the husband and wife duo of design, Charles and Ray Eames. The PBS website describes the film in this way:
“this is the only film that explores the link between their artistic collaboration and sometimes tortured marriage. Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey’s definitive documentary delves into the private world the Eameses created in their Renaissance-style, Venice Beach, California studio, where design history was born.”
We have all heard of the Eames chair, but this is just one of their many design accomplishments. I am sure this film will be filled with incredible imagery from the mid-20th century, art, architecture, and provide a glimpse into a world of two design geniuses. I am definitely DVRing this one.
