Information and Features
Stylish, luxury and modern comfort are just some labels for this iconic set. Rest in luxury leather on the Executive Leather Chair that is based on a design by Eames in the 1950′s.
It was designed to create a club chair using the molded plywood technology that they pioneered in the ’40s. “the vision was a chair with the “warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.” The result has become the consummate lounge set, timelessly blending old-fashioned comfort and visionary modernism. Pairing soft, inviting leather with the sleek form of molded plywood, the seat is balanced on a five-star, die-cast steel base. This authentic-quality reproduction is virtually identical to the original Charles Eames lounge chair.
The design which inspired this chair was created for film director Billy Wilder in 1956 and this reproduction of the original faithfully reflects the Eames original intentions but at a fraction of the cost of an original chair. It is superbly made and at this price finally fulfils their desire to make great furniture available to everyone. Charles Eames summarised their design philosophy when he said “We wanted to make the best for the most for the least.”
The chair sits low and flexs slightly and the seating position is ergonomically designed; it is not a recliner chair.
