Inspired by Charles and Ray Eames, "Eames Wire Chair" 

Interesting Facts:

  • In the early 1950s, the Eames office investigated bent and welded wire as the basis for furniture. Inspired by trays, dress forms, and baskets, the office developed a variety of pieces, inclluding Eames wire chairs.
  • In 1951, Charles and Ray Eames introduced their wire chair into the world, presenting a lightweight, twisted metal counterpart to their plywood and molded plastic furniture.
  • They made the rim of the chair a lighter-gauge wire and doubled it for stability to achieve strength requirements, an organic shape, and cost restraints. This advance won them the first American mechanical patent for design.
