Eames Lounge Chair

1956 Assembly Film

Vitra manufacturing, Germany

Since its 1956 introduction, the Eames lounge chair has become a true representation of classic design. The chair is now in production by both Herman Miller for the American market and Vitra for the European market. Vitra designers adjusted the overall dimensions of the lounge chair for maximum comfort of the individual while staying true to the aesthetic of the chair. Herman Miller also adjusted the design of the original chair by specifying contract-grade leather for increased durability, and began to use lacquered wood instead of oiled wood finishes.
