VITRA - LOUNGE CHAIR&OTTOMAN Palisander-Black By Archiproducts.com
Leather, Multi-Layer Wood
‚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.
