Eames Wire Chairs
In 1951, following the success of their molded plastic and plywood chairs, Charles and Ray Eames challenged themselves to design a reasonably priced, quality chair that was light yet strong. Their solution - the Eames Wire Chair - featured a sculpted look, comfort, and practicality. It was an immediate hit. Today's versions remain true to the original design, materials, and detailing. The airy silhouette features a seat made of cross-woven wires and positioned on a bent-wire, welded base, also called the "Eiffel Tower" base. It is today part of the permanent collection in numerous museums, including San Francisco MOMA and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
