We interrupt our regular program (i.e. the cinema/design posts) for my all time favourite chair, now in a new edition:
The Eames Lounge Chair, the ultimate example of superior quality and luxurious comfort since 1956, is now available in light-toned wood, polished aluminium and white leather.
This new interpretation of the Lounge Chair was achieved by Vitra in close cooperation with the Eames Office and 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. Parallel to the new version, of course, the classic Lounge Chair in black leather and rosewood veneer will continue to be available.
