Exploring the Eames era

Designers Charles Eames (1907-1978) and his wife Ray (1912-1988) are said to have given shape to 20th-century style in the United States. Their influence can be seen not only in furniture design and architecture but also in graphic design, movies and photography.

Their creations, prototypes, designs and drawings are on display in an exhibition at Daimaru department store above the Yaesu side of Tokyo Station.

The exhibition, planned by the Vitra Design Museum of Germany and the U.S. Library of Congress, is a traveling exhibition that started in 1997.

The Charles and Ray Eames Exhibition is open through March 14, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. (to 4:30 p.m. on the last day), on the department store's 12th floor.

The admission is 900 yen for adults and 700 yen for university and senior high school students and free for younger children.
