Charles and Ray Eames – Design and Function for Modern Living
Although the majority of their famous designs were created in the mid-20th Century, Charles and Ray Eames created stylish pieces that have stood the test of time – and many are now seen as iconic examples of Mid-Century Modern art, furniture and architecture.
As with many furniture designers, Charles Eames was studying architecture when he collaborated with Eero Saarinen in a competition to make the ultimate chair for the Museum of Modern Art in 1940. The Organic Chair, as it was known, was made from bent plywood, and although it won the competition, Eames and Saarinen lacked the technology to put it into production.
However, after marrying Ray in 1941, Charles began working on a series of chairs that made the most of technological advances and in some ways helped to create the technology that is still used today in fine furniture manufacture. One of the last of their well-known works – the Aluminium Range – was originally commissioned as outdoor furniture for the home of J Irwin Miller, the founder of Cummins Engines, in 1958. This Aluminium Range is what we base our replica Eames office chair designs on – as it was developed and improved to become the stylish statement piece we know and recognise today.
The Replica Eames Office Chair – More than Just Function
Of course, for a chair to earn its place as a style icon, it still needs to be functional – and function is the very pinnacle of the Eames Office Chair in all variations. The original design of the Aluminium Range featured a woven suspension back and seat that was stretched between aluminium ribs. In further development for production, the woven seat and back was replaced with the iconic leather and later the Soft Pad designs – which is the way we look for our replica Eames office chair designs here at Milano Republic.
Our Replica Eames Group Standard Aluminium Chair has the same design features as the original – with the option of tan, black or white leather or PU, a high or mid back, and ribbed leather or soft pad options available. With chromed aluminium legs and a polished final look, we passionately believe this is the best Eames office chair replica available in Australia.
