Japan Design Committee is pleased to present the 780th Design Gallery 1953 special exhibition, “The Identity of Eames: Power in the Details”.
Charles Eames, the mid-century master, left behind many masterpieces that will remain in the history of design. His achievements are still resonating with many people more than half a century after his death, and are not forgotten. Eames also had a profound influence on designers around the world through his ideas and approach to design. One of his admirers, Yoshihiko Terahara, professor emeritus at Musashino Art University, was entrusted with the preservation of many cultural asset drawings of Eames’ designs.
For the first time in Japan, the Design Gallery will exhibit dozens of full-size drawings of Eames’ works that have been kept by Mr. Terahara. These drawings will be interpreted from the unique perspective of Mr. Terahara, a researcher and designer, to reveal the essence of Eames design that lies hidden in the details of the drawings.
This exhibition is sure to be a big hit with many people involved in design and Eames fans, not just Eames fans. We hope you will visit the exhibition.
