Whats this then? A whole doccumentary looking at the remarkable Charles and Ray Eames? Can it really be true? It is enough to bring a spring to the saggiest of seats!

Eames have produced some of the most iconic designs of the 20th centuray including furniture, architecture, exhibition design but mostly their approach to the concept of design and art as a way of life not just a practice.
