Ray Kaiser
1912–1988

Introduction

Bernice Alexandra Kaiser Eames (née Kaiser; December 15, 1912 – August 21, 1988) was an American artist and designer who worked in a variety of media.

In creative partnership with her husband, Charles Eames, and The Eames Office, she was responsible for groundbreaking contributions in the fields of architecture, graphic design, textile design, film, and furniture. The Eames Office is most famous for its furniture, which is still being produced today. Together as a couple, the Eames are considered one of the most influential creative forces of the 20th century.

During her lifetime, Ray Kaiser Eames received notably less credit than she has been given posthumously in art and design literature, museum shows, and documentary films.
