About the Designer Charles & Ray Eames United States
Charles Ormond Eames, Jr (1907–1978) and Bernice Alexandra "Ray" (née Kaiser) Eames (1912–1988) were American designers, who worked in and made major contributions to modern architecture and furniture. They also worked in the fields of industrial and graphic design, fine art and film.
Exceptionally generous in size, the Eames Executive Chair has deep cushions and padded arms--unmistakable hallmarks of a chair steeped in rich tradition as well as elegant comfort. They also feature the highest quality materials, as any executive would expect in the office, conference room, lounge, or board room.
Charles and Ray Eames developed the first Eames Executive Chairs to grace the lobby of the Time-Life Building in New York City. That’s why some people still call them Time-Life chairs
Names aside, this elegant chair gives those who sit in it the time of their life. Exceptionally generous in size, Eames executive chairs feature the highest quality materials, including an aluminum base and frame and finely detailed upholstery. The chair’s deep cushions and padded arms bring luxurious comfort to working in an office or making momentous decisions around a boardroom table
They were originally developed to meet the need for a ultra comfortable office chair that was significantly smaller than the time honored Eames Lounge Chair
In 1972, chess grand master Bobby Fischer specifically requested the Eames executive chair while he competed in the World Chess Championship in Reykjavik, Iceland. He said he could concentrate well in the chair. When opponent Boris Spaasky saw it, he refused to play until he got one too.
