The eames.com marketplace is happy to present the lounge seating designs of Charles and Ray Eames. From their fabled Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman and Aluminum Group recliners to the low centered fiberglass, plywood and wire chairs.
What makes a design good design? Lounge chairs are nothing new, after all, man has sought comfort since the dawn of time. The answer may lie in the complex layers of the details, something that Charles and Ray Eames were accustomed to pouring into their work. Whilst some designs change as the fashions come and go, the work of the mid-century duo has rarely waned and indeed may be as popular as ever.
It would be easy to make a design visually spectacular whilst ignoring the practical function of making a lounge chair comfortable! The Eames Lounge Chair is quite possibly unrivaled on all levels, fusing industry leading ergonomic comfort with beautiful good looks. The design from start to finish was a painstaking progress of finding the ideal position, perfecting the angles which provide that all over body comfort. Add sumptuous and inviting leather and you are left with a design that is coveted the world over. From neo-classical to the extreme modern, the Eames Lounge Chair has always seamlessly blended in as the perfect accompaniment to any interior. This is what makes good design, effortless beauty, coupled with molded comfort and unsolicited practicality.
But as good as the lounge chair and ottoman was, it was not the first nor the last chair designed for lounging that the Eames invented. The first to the market would use their newly pioneered molded plywood, again using ahead of the times ergonomics to fit to the human body, with both metal and wood legs as options. These techniques were extended to the early 1950’s fiberglass chairs with very low center of gravity lounge chairs and again shortly after with the Eames wire chairs too.
The success of the Lounger and Ottoman though was the catalyst for the Eames to produce even more successful designs meant for this purpose. The Aluminium Group was released a short time after and comprised of wonderfully aesthetic and comfortable loungers and recliners and this range was extended even further a decade later with the addition of the soft pad chairs.
