The “Lounge Chair” (1955) is the only Eames’ model which deliberately winks at the world of luxury and opulence. Above all, it represents a decisive contribution to the modern design of the ‘50s, which, free of the austere geometric forms of the ‘20s, moves towards more sculpted and organic shapes. Eames wanted a comfortable yet simple armchair, whose frame and upholstery are fused like two hands crossed together. This is the explanation he gave his wife, or at least it’s as the story goes. The result fully respects his intentions: the armchair appears to wrap itself around the body like a glove, allowing the user to sink into slowly, just the way Eames intended it. Without minimizing in any way its innovative aspects regarding materials: bent plywood for the wooden “frames,” pressure-cast aluminium for the base. On permanent exhibit at MoMA in New York. Swivel armchair and Ottoman. Black lacquered aluminium fusion base, and polished chrome in the high part. Bent plywood shell, natural or lacquered. Polyurethane foam padding. Leather upholstery.
