Charles & Ray Eames Lounge Chair

The Lounge Chair is one of the most famous designs by Charles and Ray Eames. Created in 1956 it is now a classic in the history of modern furniture. Since the Lounge Chair went into production more than 50 years ago, the height of the average human – depending on region – has increased by as much as 10 cm. To enable larger people to experience exceptional comfort when sitting, Vitra has – in close coordination with the Eames Office – adjusted the dimensions of the Lounge Chair. In doing so, the proportions of the seat and back shells were carefully extended in such a way that the overall visual appearance of the Eames Lounge Chair seems to hardly have changed at all.
