In the early 1950s, the Eames office investigated bent and welded wire as the basis for furniture. Inspired by trays, dress forms, and baskets, the office developed a variety of pieces, including Eames wire chairs.
They made the rim of the chair a lighter-gauge wire and doubled it for stability to achieve strength requirements, an organic shape, and cost restraints. This advance won them the first American mechanical patent for design.
The chair was marketed by Herman Miller until 1967 and reintroduced in 2001.
Charles and Ray Eames met the challenge of making 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.
Airy silhouette. The seat is made of cross-woven wires and positioned on a bent-wire, welded base, also called the "Eiffel Tower" base.
Organic shape. The seat fits the contours of the body.
Striking presence. Seat and base are chrome finish.
Sturdy, easy to move. There's cross-weaving only where strength is required to make the chair lightweight.
Multipurpose. Adds artistic interest - and functional seating - to residences and workplaces alike.
Choice of Styles
Beautiful leather. Available with a one-piece leather seat pad, or with a criss-cross two-piece leather pad (the "bikini").
Wire only. The chair is also available unpadded.
Glide choices. Standard glides can be ordered with felt bottoms to protect bare floors; both styles tilt slightly to help with leveling.
