Lighter, more elegant and more modern than its contemporaries at the time, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman became one of the most famous Eames designs, setting new standards in modern design. The chair and ottoman now come with a veneer wood shell in American Cherry. This warm, subdued colour, accentuated by a prominent grain, gives the piece a contemporary look. Completing this iconic piece is the luxuriously tactile upholstery; Leather Premium in chocolate gives the chair a soft embrace, while its overall aesthetic is perfectly suited to both classic and modern interiors. Choose between the classic or new dimensions in order to cater to your body type.
American husband and wife design duo Charles and Ray Eames have had a profound influence on the visual character of American life, producing original work within the fields of architecture, furniture design, industrial design, manufacturing and the photographic arts.
The Eames’ first partnered with Vitra in 1957 to produce some of the most iconic pieces of furniture in the history of interior design. Today Vitra continues to reflect their philosophy on design and functionality, best understood through Charles’ own words: “Recognising the need is the primary condition for the design”.
