Since Charles Eames was mostly in the foreground in official statements and appearances, Ray’s influence is underestimated accordingly. Ray Eames’ training as a visual artist, however, suggests that Charles took on the more technical and Ray the more artistic part of the working relationship. The example of Ray Eames’ greaves sculpture gives an idea of the creative part that Ray brought to Charles’ work.

Designing often necessitates considering the aesthetic, functional, economic and sociopolitical dimensions of both the design object and design process. It may involve considerable research, thought, modeling, interactive adjustment, and re-design.
