A rare bit of footage featuring an interview on Arlene Francis’s ‘Home’ with Charles Eames (with Ray in the background). In it, he discusses their various chairs and introduces the Eames Lounge Chair for Herman Miller. Ray is very much treated as ‘Mrs Eames’, Charles’s ‘helper’.

Oh, you wouldn’t get away with that today. I hope…

Lovely footage of the construction of the Lounge Chair, an updated version of the classic English club chair and produced with an ottoman. Vitra still produce it. Love it.
