Charles & Ray Eames - Miniature - Lounge Chair & Ottoman (1956)



The Lounge Chair is one of the best known creations of Charles and Ray Eames. It has become a classic in modern furniture history. This luxury item was inspired by the traditional English Club Chair. This object has become iconic with Modern style design, although when it was first made, Ray Eames remarked in a letter to Charles that the chair looked "comfortable and un-designy". Charles's vision was for a chair with "the warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt."

The main purpose of this furniture is to offer users maximum seating comfort. Hence it combines both function with timeless design. The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman are part of the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art.

This Vitra collectible miniature design chair is constructed to the exact specifications of the original, right down to the last detail.
