Internationally recognized as one of the more prominent names within the design industry, the Eames name is synonymous with the concept of modern design. At the price of producing reliably exceptional pieces across the board, Herman Miller's Eames Collection consistently stands at the forefront of great design with numerous other iconic and timeless classics. Pieces that carry the Eames name range from lounge, to dining, to workspace, and to accessories; each with a grounded history in mid-century modernism and each consistently produced with remarkably high quality that hasnt wavered since its initial production.
After meeting while attending Cranbrook Academy of Art and subsequently marrying in 1941, Charles and Ray Eames' working partnership aimed to create multifunctional designs since the beginning. Initially started as an experimental collaborative effort between Charles Eames and Eero Sararinen, steps taken to manipulate and mold plywood into strong, flexible products proved difficult and would eventually lead the couple to constructing a special machine specifically for this capability. Since successfully improving their technological process with molding plywood, the Eames applied their newfound capability to designing and producing domestic furniture pieces under Herman Miller. In no time, the couple progressed with employing their technique to other materials like aluminum, fiberglass, and plastic as they expanded their line to include dining chairs, tables, storage units, lounge seating, office seating, and desks. Many of the Eames furniture pieces remain trendy to this day while being used across residential and commercial settings. The familiar silhouette of the Eames Lounge Chairs, the Eames Walnut Stools, the Eames Molded Chairs, or any number of their loved items, stays true to quality and enduring design with furnishing pieces that outlast cycling design trends while setting the standard.
