The Eames moulded lounge chair has been given a fresh new look with the introduction of new colours. The colours are a dramatic update for an enduringly popular chair first produced in 1945 and named by Time magazine in 1999 as the Design of the Century.
The colourful palette for the lounge chair with wooden legs (LCW) initially includes yellow, light blue, and white, with green, orange, black, and red aniline stains added later. Herman Miller collaborated with the Eames Office to select appropriate colours to apply to the design. Colours were chosen from the palate used by Charles and Ray Eames for the Eames Hang-It-All and Eames Storage Unit and from Eames’ contemporary and friend, Alexander Girard’s textile designs.
