The iconic and classic Vitra Eames Lounge Chair was born as a remake of the classic English club chair by designers Charles and Ray Eames. The Lounge Chair took several years to develop and, as possibly one of Eames most famous designs, became renowned in the history of modern furniture following its production in 1956.
The Lounge Chair is now available from Vitra in two sizes: with classic dimensions and with new, larger dimensions in various combinations of leather upholstery covers, wooden shells and bases.
Since the Lounge Chair first went into production, average human height has increased worldwide by nearly 10 cm. In close coordination with the Eames Office, Vitra developed the new larger version so that taller people, too, can enjoy the same exceptional comfort that Charles and Ray Eames intended with their original 1956 design.
