Vitra marks 60th anniversary of Eames Lounge Chair with fabric edition
Nov 6, 2016
Vitra, manufacturer of the Eames Lounge Chair, is celebrating the iconic chair's 60th anniversary with a fabric-upholstered limited edition available through January 31.
American husband and wife designers Charles and Ray Eames designed the Lounge Chair in 1956. Inspired by the English club chair, their version was light, modern, soft and comfortable and has become a classic.
Over the years, the leather-upholstered chair has been made available with different veneers, leather colors and bases. While it was offered with fabric colors in the early years after its introduction, Swiss furniture company Vitra, which began producing the Lounge Chair in 1959, has always produced it exclusively in leather.
Now, in celebration of the chair's 60th anniversary, Vitra is offering a limited edition of the chair and ottoman covered in a twill fabric imparting softness and warmth.
The Lounge Chair Twill comes in the chair's classic color combination of black with dark-reddish palisander wood.
The fabric-covered Lounge Chair Twill and Ottoman come with a "60 Years in Production" certificate and are marked with a corresponding label. They are available now through January 31 from select Vitra dealers.
