It may only be two designs, the Tandem Seating and Sling Seat Group, but the sheer versatility of Charles and Ray Eames Group Seating would see them installed the world over, from the terminals of airports, to stadiums, launderettes and waiting rooms.
The general concept of Group Seating was aimed at providing mass seating solutions for locations with potential influxes of people. Charles and Ray Eames however added so much more to their Sling and Tandem Seating ranges. Not only could the systems be extended and extended to suit every application, but they were all visually stunning and were molded for the comfort of the user, something seldom seen before with mass seating.
The Sling Seating system was a mesmeric combination of highly polished Aluminum alongside stretched black Naugahyde. The system was available in lines of up to 10 seats which may even be back to back, with the flexibility of adding tables too where required. It was a popular choice for airport terminals, where indeed they can still be found today.
The Tandem Seating was an extension of the fiberglass plastic chair range. It was essentially an extendable bar with intermittent spaces for the attachment of the fiberglass arm or side shells as well as tables if required. They could be found with both the standard arm and side fiberglass tops as well as those originally designed for Alexander Girard’s La Fonda restaurant.
