Vintage Venice Video with Charles Eames


Peep this clip from the “extras” included on the DVD “EAMES: The Architect and The Painter” which features Charles Eames driving down Main, Pacific and Abbot Kinney near the old Eames offices at 901 Washington (now known as 901 Abbot Kinney) in 1973.

The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America’s most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind-bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys.
