According to Charles Eames, this chair was designed to emit the “warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt. It was designed as a special refuge from the strains of modern living. The iconic Eames chair is three curved plywood shells: a headrest, backrest, and seat. Two metal spines set on spacers supporting the reclined rosewood-veneered back and sumptuous leather cushions (designed by Alexander Girard). “ * In 1961, Playboy magazine sang the chair’s praises by saying the Eames Lounge Chair and ottoman “sank the sitter into a voluptuous luxury that few mortals since Nero have known”. Give this chair a try and you will understand why so many hail it as the world’s most comfortable chair. A piece of history and luxury, an icon of design.
