Blending the style and support of the office chair with the padded comfort and warmth of the armchair, the STIN.com version of the Charles Eames Lobby Chair ES 105 is the ideal addition to almost any stylish room. Consisting of three padded cushions, held in place with a sleek polished metal frame and available in a range of premium leather finishes, it slips effortlessly into any decor, whether it be high-end business or welcoming home lounge. And with the signature ergonomic comfort that was a hallmark of the Eames's work, it is a true icon of 20th Century design.
Almost a hybrid between the Eames's seminal Lounge Chair and EA217 Office Chair designs, the Lobby Chair is as versatile and comfortable as it is stylish. Originally designed to furnish the lobbies of the Time Life building in New York, its combination of padded individual cushions and sleek, stylish metal frame made it an instant hit. And even today, it is one of Charles and Ray Eames's most sought-after designs.
Charles, 1907-1978 (United States) - Ray, 1912-1988 (United States)
Charles Eames was an American designer and innovator who pioneered new techniques, such as the fibreglass and plastic resin moulding and wire mesh frames. He usually worked alongside his wife, Ray, though he is often credited alone. In the 1940s, the designers began focusing on the new plastics and were excited by the properties the material held. They were able to mould the plastics into organic shapes that followed the shape of the body. This discovery led to a whole new look in furniture that perfectly captured the spirit of the times. The couple’s most iconic designs include the DAR chair, the DSR Dining Chair, the RAR Rocker, the DSW Dining Chair, the EA 108 Office Chair and the Wire Base Table. Many of these were first presented at the New York Museum of Modern Art’s Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition in the late 1940s.
