Introduced in 1958 as a special project by Ray Eames for a private residence being designed by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard, the Eames Aluminum Group originally was specified as "leisure furniture." Now used in various locations, their classic lines and comfortable suspension have kept them in demand for numerous years and spaces, from contemporary homes to elegant offices and hip startups.
The Eames Aluminum Group Lounge Chair and Ottoman melds the classic style of the Aluminum Group with the comfort of a lounge chair, perfect for the office or home office. The Design:
Aluminum Group chairs were originally developed in 1958 as a special project by Ray Eames for a private residence being designed by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard.
At the time, the furniture was called the "leisure group," or "indoor-outdoor group" since it was meant to address the lack of quality outdoor furniture on the market.
The seat-back suspension was a major technical achievement and represented a departure from the concept of the chair as a solid shell.
Wonderfully comfortable, the chairs became the basis for several other Eames designs, including the Soft Pad chairs.
