An innovative design that mixes materials and minimalist styling to great effect, the EA 105's slender form is both ergonomic and distinctive. Its organic shaped seat follows the natural curves of the body for maximum comfort. A mid-height back provides support to the neck and balance to the design. The seat comes in a choice of either mesh or leather. The leather option is lightly padded and brings an additional touch of luxury to your home office. The mesh version is designed to increase airflow. Both fabrics are available in black or white. The chair is suspended on a wheeled four-star aluminium base, which adds an interesting contrast to the seat material. It has a swivel function.
The story behind the Eames EA 105 Office Chair
Part of the iconic Aluminium Group, the Eames 105 Office Chair was designed in 1958. It is rated as one of the great achievements of mid century design. An important characteristic of the Aluminium Group chairs is the intelligent combination of materials. The aluminium brings stability and lightness, while the material is an integral part of the design, offering comfort without excessive upholstery.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Charles, 1907-1978 (United States) - Ray, 1912-1988 (United States)
Charles Eames was an American designer and innovator who pioneered new techniques, such as the fibreglass and plastic resin moulding and wire mesh frames. He usually worked alongside his wife, Ray, though he is often credited alone. In the 1940s, the designers began focusing on the new plastics and were excited by the properties the material held. They were able to mould the plastics into organic shapes that followed the shape of the body. This discovery led to a whole new look in furniture that perfectly captured the spirit of the times. The couple's most iconic designs include the DAR chair, the DSR Dining Chair, the RAR Rocker, the DSW Dining Chair, the EA 108 Office Chair and the Wire Base Table. Many of these were first presented at the New York Museum of Modern Art's Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition in the late 1940s.
