Published by the Vitra Design Museum, Essential Eames: Words & Pictures is a captivating visual-verbal journey to the thoughts and works of Charles and Ray Eames, two of the most influential designers of the 20th century. The Eameses participated actively in the cultural discussions of their time, and many of their thoughts have later become aphorisms, such as ”Take your pleasure seriously”, a quote that perfectly sums up their joyous philosophy. The book consists of short quotes of the Eameses’ writings and speeches sorted in different themes, and the text is complemented by vivid photos by the Eameses and their staff.
