Celebrating Eames

In honor of Charles Eames 107th birthday, we've re-created an archival image that exemplifies an expression frequently heard at the Eames Office: "Take your pleasure seriously." For the Eameses, life and work often intertwined, and they found immense joy in the daily exploration and innovation that fueled their creativity. Designs such as the Eames Shell Chair resulted from their boundless curiosity and enthusiasm; at once pleasurable and highly useful, the Shell Chair is a true testament to the Eameses' belief in serious fun.

Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman

The lounge chair and ottoman have their origin in Charles and Ray’s investigations into molding plywood and a desire to improve upon a familiar fixture in many living rooms: the lounge chair. Citing the English club chair as inspiration, Charles said he sought to design a modern version of that chair, one that had “the warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt.” Almost immediately, the design became an icon of American design.
