The world famous designers, Charles & Ray Eames debut their Lounge Chair in 1956 on NBC…

Charles & Ray Eames discuss a number of their design masterpieces including their then new Eames Lounge Chair, on the Arlene Francis “Home” show broadcast on the NBC television network in 1956.

Although at times quite patronising to Ray herself, the video offers an exceptional view of the Eames’ philosophies and approaches to design. It’s well worth a look.

The legendary design team Charles & Ray Eames made films, houses and classic midcentury modern furniture. Eames Demetrios, their grandson, shows rarely seen films and archival footage in a lively, loving tribute to their creative process..
