The intelligent design of the Eames EA 124 Lounge Chair delivers an extremely relaxing seating experience. The sleek modernist style features lightly padded leather stretched across a lightweight aluminium frame to create a supportive but flexible seat. Ergonomically angled for maximum comfort, the chair has the added benefit of a cushioned headrest. For ease of movement, the chair can be swiveled and tilted. The seat itself is made from Italian aniline leather, which is designed to improve with age. It is available in six colours - black, brown, dark brown, red, white and cream.

The story behind the Eames EA 124 Lounge Chair
The EA 124 is part of the Aluminium Group, one of the greatest furniture collections in the 20th century. Each piece in the collection is cleverly constructed from an aluminium frame combined with a high quality material, such as leather or mesh. The chairs are designed to adapt to the body of the sitter and are extremely comfortable, without the need for excessive upholstery. Originally designed for a private residence built by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard, the chairs have evolved into international icons showcased in design museums 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.
