Armchair by Charles Eames: a Shell of Comfort

The armchair by charles eames is an object that makes part of the history design and the modern furniture: and the armchair by Charles eames reached this goal without upsetting the stylist canons or searching a particular and elegant but uncomfortable line. Indeed the armchair by Charles eames keeps intact its soul and its principal function: this armchair gives a comfortable seat beyond every possible experimentation and futuristic stylistic choice.

Indeed the armchair by Charles eames borne from the mind of its creator like a chaise lounge, an armchair characterized most for its comfort. When Charles Eames talked about his idea with his wife Ray (who was also a designer and his precious collaborator) joined the fingers of his hands to create a sort of shell, to illustrate the idea that was in his mind in that moment.

And this idea of a cozy  and comfortable shell marked the study of Charles eames and the next realization of his armchair.  Design is for living. That maxim shaped a widespread shift in design during the 1940s and 1950s. It was a revolution of form, an exciting visual language that signaled a new age and a fresh start – and two of its prime movers were Charles and Ray Eames. The Eameses were a husband-and-wife team whose unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Sleek, sophisticated and simple. Beautifully functional.

Yet Charles and Ray Eames created more than a “look” with their bent plywood chairs and molded fiberglass seating. They had ideas about making a better world, one in which things were designed to fulfill the practical needs of ordinary people and bring greater simplicity and pleasure to our lives.

The armchair by Charles eames has a line inspired to classic English club chair. With this choice the America designer  wanted to remark the contact with the most classical style of furniture. The news for this armchair are in the materials using for the project and the gained result: indeed this result made this armchair unique in the style of the next century.

For this armchair Charles eames used some plywood strips, a material at the same resistant and elastic: in this way is possible obtain the effect for what the user that sits on this armchair feels like being wrapped from the shell made by the armchair, in a sensation of maximum comfort (and this saving also the solidity of the armchair and a long lasting duration).

The Eameses adventurously pursued new ideas and forms with a sense of “serious fun.” Yet it was rigorous discipline that allowed them to achieve perfection of form and mastery over materials. And they didn’t stop with furniture. The Eameses also created a highly innovative Case Study House in response to a magazine contest. They made films, including a seven-screen installation at the 1959 Moscow World’s Fair, presented in a dome designed by Buckminster Fuller. They designed showrooms, invented toys and generally made the world a more interesting place to be.
