The signature style of the Eames Aluminium Group is taken to new heights with the distinctive EA 109 Office Chair. Offering the same intelligent combination of materials as the rest of the group, the EA 109 is distinguished by a high back and armrests. This brings even more luxury to an already comfortable design. The lightly padded leather seat follows the form of the body to offer ergonomic support, while the aluminium frame provides lightness and stability. A cast aluminium swivel base is finished with rubber shock mounts on the feet to prevent jarring motions. The EA 109 is upholstered in premium leather and comes in a choice of colours - white, cream, red, black, brown and dark brown.
The story behind the Eames EA 109 Office Chair
The Aluminium Group is rated as one of the greatest furniture designs of the 20th century. Designed in 1958, the Eames aluminium group was originally created for outdoor use at a private residence built by the architects, Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard. This became the prototype for the whole collection, but the Eames couple continued to adapt the chair, changing the materials and altering the look and feel. The results were the Aluminium Group as we know them today. A more comfortable, ergonomic version of the original design that has moved from the garden to executive boardrooms and home offices worldwide.
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.
