Why We Chose This
Now an icon of modern design, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman, featured in the Museum’s collection, was inspired by the English club chair — modernized with molded plywood and a more relaxed silhouette that Ray Eames described as “comfortable and un-designy.” It has been produced continuously for more than 50 years by the original manufacturer, Herman Miller®.
