An in depth history of husband and wife design team, Charles and Ray Eames is now exhibiting at The Barbican Centre. The World of Charles and Ray Eames exhibition takes you on a charming journey with their love for each other, their designs and ideas of the modernist era.

The exhibition will give you an insight of the Eames’s lives, innovation and creative drive, with personal letters, unseen work, experimental designs, drawings, architecture, photography, films and desirable iconic pieces of furniture and objects the duo are most well known for, displaying over two floors of the gallery.
