How It’s Made : Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman [Video]
Released in 1956, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman has been an icon for high-end furniture ever since. Now we can see how a unique and long lasting design is manufactured. Developed by designers Charles and Ray Eames, the sophisticated lounge chair design continues to adorn our homes. In the video below, you can see how the world-renowned Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman receives attention from skilled workers. From carefully tracing the shape of the future chair on leather to putting together the pieces of plywood, the chair emerges from the combination of a classic design and attention to details. Three curved plywood shells glued together and shaped under heat and pressure shape the basic structure of the famous lounge chair. Leather cushions with zippers ensure a comfortable seating experience and a soft but firm support. Vitra, producer of the chair for the European market, presents the manufacturing of the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman. Enjoy!
