Eames Demetrios

Eames Demetrios wears many different hats, but he is best known in the design world for his work as director of the Eames Office spearheading the successful re-discovery of the Charles and Ray Eames design heritage by new generations.  The mission of the Eames Office is communicating, preserving and extending the work of Charles and Ray Eames.

Among his many achievements in this capacity is the multimedia component of the Library of Congress/Vitra Design Museum Eames exhibition, the thinking curriculum for Scale is the New GeographyThe Essential Eames Exhibition at the Art and Science Museum in Singapore,  the re-introduction of many Eames furniture pieces, and the release and video restoration of the Eames films.  In addition, he works closely with Vitra and Herman Miller to be sure the Eames furniture is always made authentically and was instrumental in the founding of the Eames Foundation that preserves the Eames House (he is Chairman of the Board).  He has also written several books about Charles and Ray Eames—Including An Eames Primer, intended as a thematic biography of their life, work, process and philosophy, now widely used by schools and available in three languages.
