Hazel Young. Modern Chair Ottoman. September 12th , 2018.
The Eames lounge chair was created by American designer Charles Eames. He wanted to design a chair that would "resemble the warmth, familiarity and comfort of a well worn baseball mitt". He set out upon creating a chair that would satisfy this statement. The foundations of the Eames lounge chair are layered curved plywood shells, originally coated in Brazilian rosewood veneers. These are essentially the same shape as the cushions, with the back and headrest identical in proportion, and also the seat and the Ottoman, giving the chair a balanced appearance.
The result is a truly stunning chair, rich in class and sophistication combined with a timeless contemporary styling. The Eames lounge chair became a post-war status symbol favoured by the wealthy, and is still viewed as a stunning piece of design to this day, particularly with those who appreciate modern art or style design. The chair is synonymous with the image of a psychiatrist's office, because of its use as a prop in movies, plays and New Yorker cartoons. Of course, the Eames lounge chair isn't so successful by being all style and no substance.
Orange Slice Chair By Pierre Paulin The ones today are crafted much like the first piece made in the 1960s. The shell is more often than not made from pressed beech wood and the frame is built of a durable steel metal. The cushion is filled with high-density foam that makes this item very comfortable to sit on. This timeless icon is often sold as a set with a matching stool.
