The Eames Lounge Chair: Much More Than The Public Expected
The tendency to search for the perfect reading chair is common and popular for several reasons. One of them is the existence of models that offer superior ergonomics and are, in fact, highly recognized for being technically appropriate designs for this type of activity.
Among the chairs that meet these characteristics and are within the catalog of recognized pieces, there’s no doubt that the Eames Lounge Chair has a special place for being a highly sold model for more than fifty years for similar purposes, since it’s a piece suitable for both office and indoor environments (especially living rooms and studios) and outdoors such as terraces, patios, and balconies.
The design of the Eames Lounge Chair was in development for several years before the chair went on sale. Its designers, Charles and Ray Eames, sought perfection to deliver a product that lived up to the demands of an audience that wouldn’t care so much about the price but the piece’s quality.
In other words, a chair aimed at modern high-end consumers who wanted something really new, made by professionals. The end result turned out to be so momentous that it became a reference for different uses, not only reading rooms, libraries, and studies but also common-use areas and many others.
