'Why don't we make an updated version of the old English club chair?' With this comment, Charles Eames initiated the development of the Lounge Chair, a process that took several years. The aim was to satisfy the desire for an amply proportioned chair that combined ultimate comfort with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. With the design of this armchair in 1956, Charles and Ray Eames set new standards: it is not only lighter, more elegant and more modern than the conventionally ponderous club chair – it is also more comfortable. With these qualities, the Lounge Chair became one of the most famous designs of Charles and Ray Eames and has attained the status of a classic in the history of modern furniture. The Lounge Chair is now available from Vitra in two sizes: with classic dimensions and with new larger dimensions. Furthermore, the various combinations of leather upholstery covers, wooden shells and bases are now joined by a white edition of the Lounge Chair with corresponding details.
Charles & Ray Eames feature among the most important figures of twentieth century design. They boast accomplishments in the fields of furniture design, film-making, photography and exhibition design. Vitra is the only company authorised to manufacture their products for Europe and South Asia; with us, you can therefore be sure of owning an original Eames.
