About this product

Pioneers of utilising new techniques to improve the form and function of everyday objects, Charles and Ray Eames spent many years experimenting with bent plywood furniture. Moulded from multiple layers of thin plywood that is then steam pressed together, the organic shape of these durable back and seat shells has a light and flexible quality. Each piece is formed to the natural contours of the body with a gentle recline that provides an extremely comfortable sit. Alongside models with no upholstery, the Eames's also designed versions with cowhide covers - the beautiful brown and white hide rests on a thin wedge of foam to provide additional padding and support. The low-seated tubular chrome base has a similarly experimental feel, its slender, bending form giving the design a graceful feel.
