5 of the Most Influential Designers
I was at The Henry Ford in May attending the opening of an exhibit titled The World of Charles and Ray Eames. It was exciting to see so much of their work up close and personal. The exhibit does a great job of leading you through their careers, showing off furniture (including their famous plywood and leather lounge chair and ottoman, 1956), drawings, models, brochures, toys, film, and photos.
