Eames Aluminium Group - Charles & Ray Eames, 1958
The Aluminium Chair is one of the great furniture designs of the twentieth century. Charles and Ray Eames conceived and developed this chair in 1958 for the private residence of an art collector in Columbus, Indiana (USA). For its construction, the designer couple departed from the principle of the seat shell, instead stretching a panel of fabric or leather between two aluminium side members to create a taut but elastic seat. The chair adapts to the body of the sitter and is exceedingly comfortable, even without elaborate upholstery.
The Chair comes in "poppy red" Hopsak, is adjustable in height and has a adjustable rocking function, which can be switched of as well. Very good condition.
