Eames Lounge Chair from Vitra
Eames Lounge Chair
As elegant as an English club chair and as soft as a baseball glove: the Vitra Lounge Chair. The sophisticated design of Charles and Ray Eames is constructed from lightweight moulded plywood elements, stable metal clips and bulky leather upholstery mounted on a five star foot. Completing the all-round carefree feeling of the American design classic is the matching ottoman. A new edition of the '50s classic was realised in 2002 in context of a collaboration between the Eames Office and the Dutch designer Hella Jongerius: a white pigmented walnut shell and white leather help create the special charm of luxurious comfort. Thus the Eames Lounge Chair White skilfully bridges the gap between tradition, modernity, elegance and comfort.
