Charles Eames Lounge Chair
Instantly recognizable, the Eames Lounge 670 Chair is a true design icon that is reminiscent of an old English Club chair. Luxurious and sophisticated, the chair's intelligent design sets new standards for the traditional club chair. It is lighter with more elegance and comfort. The chair is angled for relaxation, with cleverly positioned cushions to offer support where needed. Its classic yet modern frame is carefully crafted from high quality wood and upholstered in soft Italian leather. The five-point base is made from cast aluminium for lightness and stability. A choice of seven colours - black, white, cream, dark brown, brown, camel and sand - make it easy to find the right look for your home. Get the full Eames effect with the addition of the matching Eames 671 foot stool, sold separately.
The story behind the Eames Lounge Chair
The idea for the Eames Lounge Chair started with a simple question: Why don't we make an updated version of the old English club chair? With this thought, Charles Eames and his wife, Ray set about designing a chair that combined maximum comfort with the finest materials. The process took several years to perfect and the finished result was introduced on NBC's Home show broadcast in 1956. It was an instant success and became a benchmark for how a lounge chair should be. Sometimes known as the Eames 'Relax' Chair because of its undeniable comfort, it is one of the most significant designs of the 20th century.
We are paying attention to the details
Leather fit for gloves
Charles Eames wanted his lounge chair to be as inviting as a well-worn baseball mitt.
That is why we have chosen to cover our version of this classic lounge chair with glove-soft, vat-tanned anilin leather. The leather’s natural grain is silky-smooth and drapes over the upholstery in soft folds.
Conscientiously selected tropical wood
In our eyes, the pronounced grain of the original rosewood veneer perfectly complements the lounge chair.
You can have a clear conscience when you select our Santos rosewood, which comes closest to the redwood used in the original. Fast-growing rosewood is cultivated in Bolivia and Brazil under the most stringent conditions.
Relax in style
The cushions are filled with several layers of foam and Dacron batting. This gives the upholstery of our lounge chair a more luxurious, decorative look.
Our lounge chair really is as comfortable as it appears.
Made from a single mold
True to the original, the legs of our lounge chair were made to match Herman Miller’s original. The top surface of the black lacquered die-cast T profile aluminium is polished to a high-gloss finish.
Adjustable stainless steel feet allow you to quickly adjust your chair to uneven surfaces.
One of the weak points in the original design is the swivel connection between the seat shell and the base. That is why we have chosen to reinforce this mounting with solid brass bushings. The stability of our assembly means that your lounge chair won’t wobble, even after several years.
Two layers are better than one
We also thought we’d tackle another weak point in the original design, the shock mounts.
Our shock mounts, which connect the seat and the back rest, are not only glued, but as well screwed into the wood. Using a slightly thicker grade of plywood means we can fasten the mounts with 10 little screws.
This connection has given way in many older versions of the lounge chair.
About The Designer
Charles, 1907-1978 (United States) - Ray, 1912-1988 (United States) Charles Eames was an American designer and innovator who pioneered new techniques, such as the fibreglass and plastic resin moulding and wire mesh frames. He usually worked alongside his wife, Ray, though he is often credited alone. In the 1940s, the designers began focusing on the new plastics and were excited by the properties the material held. They were able to mould the plastics into organic shapes that followed the shape of the body. This discovery led to a whole new look in furniture that perfectly captured the spirit of the times. The couple’s most iconic designs include the DAR chair, the DSR Dining Chair, the RAR Rocker, the DSW Dining Chair, the EA 108 Office Chair and the Wire Base Table. Many of these were first presented at the New York Museum of Modern Art’s Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition in the late 1940s.
