    The Eames lounge chair : an icon of modern design by Martin P Eidelberg Book 5 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "This book is the first in-depth study of one of the most revered pieces of American furniture, and its equally revered creators. The centerpiece is the reconstruction of Edison's Menlo Park Laboratory Complex, originally in New Jersey, where he created some of his most famous inventions, such as the phonograph and the light bulb. It is also divided into themed areas which include: crafts and trade, historic homes, transportation, pre-industrial farm life, and town buildings. The personal and professional recollections of those who knew Charles and Ray Eames confirm the Lounge Chair's enduring appeal and powerful presence, from its arrival - to critical acclaim - in the mids, when it promised a more comfortable life to postwar Americans, to its latterday appearance in fiction and film as an icon of "Mid-Century Modern" design - and a key indicator of design awareness.
