LOUNGE CHAIR & OTTOMAN WHITE VERSION

Swivel leather armchair

Manufacturer Vitra

(1956)
‚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. When it came out in 1956, the design of this armchair by 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. Thanks to 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.

Lounge Chair (white version)
Ever since it was first launched, the Lounge Chair has been manufactured in different variations. Although there was a recurrent demand for a version with white upholstery, white models were only produced infrequently as special editions.
The new interpretation of this classic armchair in a light, graceful version was developed by Vitra in collaboration with the Eames Office and Dutch designer Hella Jongerius. All of the chair‘s components are coordinated, from the zipper fasteners to the backrest spacers to the glides on the base. The off-white leather cushions fit snugly into shells of walnut veneer with a light-coloured stain; the aluminium base and back braces have a polished finish.

Materials:
- Seat and back: moulded plywood, different face veneers.
White version: walnut with a white pigmented finish.
- Upholstery/cover: removable cushions, covers in Premium or Grand leather, black version only in Premium leather.

The Lounge Chair is one of the most famous designs by Charles and Ray Eames. Created in 1956 it is now a classic in the history of modern furniture. Since 1956, the Eames Lounge Chair has combined ultimate comfort with both materials and workmanship of the highest quality. In the tradition of the English club chair, which inspired this classic design by Charles and Ray Eames, the original appearance of the Lounge Chair was defined by a dark wood veneer and black leather. However, the Eameses also created an early version with light-coloured leather upholstery. Developed in cooperation with the Eames Office, Vitra now introduces a new interpretation of the Lounge Chair. With white leather, polished aluminium and walnut veneer in a light finish, the new version harmonises perfectly with light-coloured interiors. The Lounge Chair is now also available in a version that allows maximum comfort for tall people.
