The Eames Chair is a classic of 20th century design designed by Charles and Ray Eames, the best-known designer couple. The Eames Chairs were originally presented at the MOMA in 1948 and nowadays they have become a classic of the home dining rooms due to their perfect combination between a beautiful silhouette and a unique comfort thanks to its ergonomic shape specially studied by the couple of designers.
After his first unsuccessful experiences as an architect, Charles Eames devoted himself to teaching industrial design at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. Among his colleagues were Harry Bertoia, Eero Saarinen and Ray Kaise. Eames married Ray, with whom he shared both his work and his life. The influence of Charles and Ray Eames in the design of the 50s was really enormous: sculpted organic forms, new materials and production techniques, a revolutionary approach that expressed itself not only in design, but in scenography, exhibitions, cinematography and multimedia presentations.
