  • Description
    Charles and Ray Eames
    Charles and Ray married in 1941 and moved to California where they continued their furniture design work with molding plywood. During the war they were commissioned by the Navy to produce molded plywood splints, stretchers and experimental glider shells. In 1946, Evans Products began producing the Eameses` molded plywood furniture. Their molded plywood chair was called "the chair of the century" by the influential architectural critic Esther McCoy. Soon production was taken over by Herman Miller, Inc ., who continues to produce the furniture in the United States to this day. Another company, Vitra International , manufactures the furniture in Europe. The Eameses continued to create new furniture designs into the 1970s.
    Examples include the molded plastic or fiberglass chairs from the early 1950s and the famous Lounge Chair and Ottoman from 1956. Sturdy, comfortable and elegant office furniture was created in the 1960s, as well as seating designed for Dulles and O`Hare Airports. This Tandem Sling Seating is still in use in airports around the world today.

    1 Herman Miller Time Life lounge chair and ottoman set

    Originally designed in 1960 for the lobby of the Time-Life Building in New York, this padded leather swivel chair is also known as the "Bobby Fischer," because he used it in the World Chess Championship in Reykjavik in 1972. Chess master Bobby Fisher insisted on settling into one of these chairs while he competed in the World Chess Championship in Reykjavik. When his opponent, Boris Spassky, admired it Herman Miller had one flown in for the Russian chess master as well.
