Charles & Ray Eames brought a sense of play to all their work. Throughout their careers, they designed a variety of whimsical toys and furniture for children, including this 1953 Hang It All, for Tigrett Enterprise’s Playhouse Division. Produced by Herman Miller.
The original idea behind the development of Waver (design by Konstantin Grcic) was to liberate the design from the conventions of familiar chair typologies: the new aesthetic of this swivel armchair draws on material properties and structural principles from the realm of outdoor sports. The energetic colours of the fabrics and the prominent emphasis of connections and functional elements give the chair a distinctly sporty character.
Home desk by George Nelson. Produced by Vitra. As graceful as it is decorative: this Home Desk with its refined, elegantly produced base and understated colours is one of George Nelson's design classics.
In the early 1940's the Eames, Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1989), had the chance to experiment with new methods of bending plywood in the work they did for the navy wartime effort. They applied these techniques to their furniture design.
The RAR (rocking armchair rod) has a moulded fibreglass-reinforced polyester seat and an eiffel tower base with birch wood rockers on the bottom. It is said that the RAR rockers were originally gifts to herman miller employees who just had newborns!
Every detail in the workmanship has been carefully overseen to mirror the designer's original, creating such a perfect likeness to the classic Eames lounge chair - it never fails to bring a smile to your face. dimensions (in.) chair 24.8w x 23.6d x 24.8h ottoman 19.3w x 16.9d x 14.6h.
