Does modern design only mean industrial? Apparently so. The Eames Lounge Chair, the ultimate design icon originally designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1956, is now available in light-toned wood, polished aluminium and white leather.
This new interpretation of the Lounge Chair has been designed by Dutch designer Hella Jongerius. With its light, fresh appearance, the white version of the Eames Lounge Chair once again demonstrates the lasting relevance of this furniture classic. The off-white leather cushions are paired with light-toned plywood shells and a polished aluminium base. All additional details – including zippers, backrest spacers and glides – are made out of light-hued materials to create a harmonious overall appearance.
In this new colour palette, the Eames Lounge Chair becomes a centrepiece in light-coloured interiors with a bright, summery ambience. I reckon the black and rosewood veneer classic version remains my favourite and on top of my wish list. Santa, are you listening?
