What’s the Eames chair?
Correctly known as the Eames lounge chair replica (671) and Ottoman (672), this seat was one of the major seat designs of the 20th Century, blending contemporary architecture with a classic layout.
After years of evolution, it had been released in 1956 by 2 American designers, Charles, and Ray Eames. Ever since then the Herman Miller Furniture Company, with whom the Eames worked closely, was producing the seat.
Even though this is an appealing piece, the designers’ key goal was to make a seat which has been too comfortable as you can by making it ‘resemble the heat, comfort, and familiarity of a well-worn baseball mitt.’ (Charles Eames.)
The seat’s design
This is created of rich wooden veneers (it is worth noting that the veneer grain can fluctuate in each individual seat), metal or rubber shock mounts, and thick cushions which are upholstered in Italian leather that is soft.
Differences between the initial seats as well as the contemporary reproductions
Veneers: contemporary reproductions of the products glue a greater number of thinner layers of wood veneer, formed by pressure and heat. There were not too many veneer layers (made from rosewood and plywood) in original chairs.
Rubber spacers: a replicated Eames chair will utilize a selection of substances for the spacers like plastic, metal or rubber, whereas the initial chairs utilized rubber spacers only.
Cushion zips: sooner these had black or brown stripes, whereas the zips on contemporary chairs are just black.
