Essential Eames explores the classic yet contemporary educational philosophies of Charles and Ray Eames through an intimate look at their films, exhibitions, presentations, and former staff members' recollections.
Although the husband-and-wife team is known primarily for furniture design, this exhibition concentrates on the Eameses' playful but sharply focused approach to working, teaching, learning, and communicating ideas. Essential Eames will feature never before seen images and launch 30 new films about the life and works of this iconic couple in design.
The exhibition was officially opened by Eames Demetrios at the Hong Kong Design Institute and is open to the public until December 2nd. The exhibition will then travel to other countries in the region including Indonesia and New Zealand.
