The classic Eames fiberglass chair has been transformed into an ergonomic office chair with wheeled feet. The PACC Chair features the Eames signature shell, which curves in all the right places to follow the contours of the body. Fully upholstered in premium leather and with integrated armrests, the PACC offers superb comfort and style. The cast aluminium four-star base brings extra elegance and works equally well in offices, dining rooms or lounges. The premium leather upholstery is available in eight colours - black, dark brown, brown, camel, sand, red, white or cream.
The story behind the Eames PACC Chair
Designed in 1950 for the MoMA 'Low Cost Furniture Design' competition, the Eames Plastic Chair collection is perhaps his most recognisable and distinguished work. It was the first industrially manufactured collection of plastic chairs and has sold in its millions worldwide. The collection comes with a range of different bases and features. Each has a different name made up of letters, which describe the chair's style. PACC stands for Pivot Armchair Cast Base on Castors.
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.
