She and her husband Charles are two of the most important designers of the 20th century. Their colleagues were Harry Bertoia, Eero Saarinen and Florence Knoll. The Eames collaborated with Saarinen on a molded-plywood chair that won two prizes in 1940. Charles and Ray’s interest in new techniques led them to experiment with fiberglass reinforced plastics with a one-piece fiberglass-shell chair, which was much admired. They worked closely with the manufacturer Herman Miller throughout the fifties and sixties.
