The story behind the Eames Lounge Chair Stool
When Eames created the Lounge Chair and Stool back in 1956 there was nothing else like it. There still isn't. The designs set new standards in how lounge furniture should look and function, and these are still followed to this day. The chair and stool were inspired by 19th century English club chairs and you can see this influence in the luxurious materials and distinctive form. But Eames modernized the style and maximised the comfort. It's this increased functionality that has contributed to the Eames Lounge series enduring popularity and iconic status.
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.
