Materials: Seat shell in dyed-through white polypropylene with a four-legged braced black powder-coated or chrome wire base.
Dimensions: Height: 63.5cm x Width: 62.5cm x Depth: 61cm (Seat height: 25.5cm)
Charles & Ray Eames are one of modern design's most recognisable partnerships. Born in the early part of the 20th Century Charles and Ray Eames married in 1941 and moved to Los Angeles, where together they began experimenting with techniques for the three-dimensional moulding of plywood. The aim was to create comfortable chairs that were affordable.
Playful and fun, the Eames' had a great energy that lives through their iconic products today. "Take your pleasure seriously" was a favourite saying of Charles Eames.
