Vitra - Eames lounge chair
Designed by Charles and Ray Eames, The Eames Lounge Chair has become iconic with Modern style design. The chair and matching ottoman, officially titled Eames Lounge (670) and Ottoman (671), are made of moulded plywood and leather and combine ultimate comfort with materials and workmanship of the highest quality. Released in 1956 after years of development the furniture has been in continuous production ever since.
With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames used their curiously and boundless enthusiasm to create pieces that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture...lean and modern, playful and functional, sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."
