About the Film
The film is a narrative about the husband and wife team and the Eames Office accomplishments, starting with chair design, but also the fields of architecture, photography and film. The film uses extensive interviews to frame the story. There are eight subjects, including Richard Saul Wurman, the founder of TED, Irish architect Kevin Roche, and screenwriter Paul Schrader; Lucia Eames and Eames Demetrios, Charles Eames' daughter and grandson; and three former Eames office designers: Jeannine Oppewall, Gordon Ashby, and Deborah Sussman.
