“Eames-era” is a common shorthand synonym on ebay and elsewhere for midcentury-modern design of the post-war era. It refers to Charles and Ray Eames, pre-eminent post-war American industrial and information designers. The Eames are well-known for many of their furniture designs in plywood and molded fiberglass (eg the famous “Eames chair”), but they rarely if ever worked with lighting. As far as we know, the Eames never did lighting product design using fiberglass parchment.
