Charles Eames Designer Chairs
Charles and Ray Eames are dazzling personalities in the world of furniture design. Modern and full of enthusiasm to explore they experimented with materials, shapes and production methods and almost always landed a hit.
There are many Charles Eames designer chairs, each a crowning achievement. Today the Eames Lounge Chair is probably the most popularly known but in terms of numbers its less glamorous cousins, the Plastic chairs and in pole position the Aluminium chairs, are far ahead. Together they cover every conceivable interior challenge as long as it can be tackled with a chair.
A Charles Eames chair for every taste
The Aluminium range itself offers a large selection, including a minimalist lounger with ottoman to an office chair for the executive floors. Depending on model and configuration an Eames Aluminium chair cuts a fine figure whether in a large open plan office or on the terrace at home. The Aluminium chair EA 117 serves as an entry model and that is not a minor task. Comfortable, light weight and with swivel and tilt feature it doesn’t lack anything. And it has the good looks of the family.
Those who prefer a bit more luxury go for the upholstered leather models. The Soft Pad Chair EA 217 heads the first league with upholstery that offers incredible seating comfort.
In between those two are plenty of options to satisfy any seating preference.
The Plastic chairs too offer a wide choice of configurations. Whether as conference chairs, at the home office, the dining table or in the living room, they are a delight not only as design objects but also thanks to their utilitarian value. They originate from the initial idea to design a single piece seat shell considering ergonomic basics. The Eames achieved not only that but a visually pleasing addition to any interior.
With their own approach to design tasks Charles and Ray Eames created practical, congenial furniture that are as contemporary today as the were the day they were introduced to the market.
There is no such thing as THE Charles Eames designer chair. Everyone will discover his own favourite just like the Eames discovered the world of furniture design.
