Charles & Ray Eames, 1960
Charles and Ray Eames originally designed the Stools as furnishings for three lobbies in New York City's Rockefeller Center – together with the legendary Lobby Chairs. Made from solid turned walnut, these practical stools can also serve as decorative occasional tables.
- Material: laminated sections of solid walnut, lathe-turned, transparent lacquer finish.
- Origin of wood: walnut (Juglans nigra) from Western Europe and/or Poland.
In 1960, the Eames Office was commissioned by Time Inc. to outfit the interiors of three lobbies in New York's Rockefeller Center. As part of this project, Charles and Ray Eames designed the plush Lobby Chairs and a series of solid walnut stools. These turned stools, which can also be used as occasional tables, are differentiated by the distinctive profiles of their shafts.
