A Love Letter to Design – The Eames Lounge by Charles and Ray Eames from Herman Miller
The Eames Lounge and Ottoman is a love letter to design, encompassing quality, strength and authenticity. Designed by Charles and Ray Eames for the furniture company Herman Miller, the iconic Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman is still as relevant today as it was in 1956.
Herman Miller embodies excellent quality and timeless design, and the Eames Lounge and Ottoman celebrates this in its intention. Its comfortable, clean-lined aesthetic remains a symbol of elegance; it represents the simple components of functionality and high-quality design. The Eames Lounge elevates a space, as seen in the Melbourne workplace of Hassell, the studio of interior design firm Bergman & Co, and in the home of architect and urban designer Koos de Keijzer from DKO Architecture.
As a love letter to timeless and poignant design, the Eames Lounge and Ottoman commemorates authentic materialism, combining the natural and the manufactured. Originally inspired by a catcher’s mitt, the materials used are those that age well and, as the leather softens, adds more values to the furnishings overtime.
Showcasing the very way design can endure the test of time, The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman from Herman Miller manages to encompass history and embrace its future presence in modern living and design.
