Like the Eames aesthetic, the new documentary narrated by James Franco on the husband-and-wife design team behind Eames is insightful, stylish and cool.

 

 

Together Charles and Ray Eames helped give shape to the 20th century with their modern furniture, but it was their philosophy on life that we love most. They viewed their roles as architect and painter not as jobs, but as ways of looking at the world – “Life was fun was work was fun was life.”  We’re guessing this philosophy made for a genuinely enjoyable workweek.
