The two artists chosen compares in many ways. Ron Arad designs were mainly based on the post-industrial nature of designs. Ron also is still seen to be active in the design industry, unlike his counterparts who are no longer practicing in the design industry. Ron’ s furniture was mainly made of steel, carbon fiber and glass. The materials made for his furniture are mainly waterproof owing to the nature of materials that have been used in designing them which are polyurethane and also polyester fiber. His furniture has the characteristic of being portable in nature while maintaining their colors since they are waterproof, hence no fading of colors takes place in his furniture. Ray and Charles Eames have their furniture mainly made of organic materials.

Their home furnishings mainly come from plywood materials. Ray and Charles Eames unlike Ron are not practicing currently their designing and architecture. They were industrial and graphic designers and also ventured into fine art and film. Therefore, they have a more varied nature of practicing design and architecture when compared to Ron. They had many works based on photography unlike Ron and designed many houses including their own house.

Unlike Ron, they used fiberglass as well as plastic resin chairs for their furniture. They also used aluminum in some of their designs of furniture. Molding is a great part of Ray and Charles Eames works due to the presence of the use of plywood. Ray and Charles made a great contribution towards World War II from their designed stretchers that served the US navy in the war. Therefore, their works appear to be more diverse in nature when compared to Ron. Both of the chosen artists studied design.

Ron studied furniture design and industrial design while undertaking technology classes while Ray and Charles studied architecture and furniture designs. They complement each other’ s works. When the piece of furniture that they both produced is looked at keenly, some similarities emerge. Both of the chairs that they produce have similar characteristics.
