Eames Office was established in 1941 by the legendary Charles and Ray Eames, producing some of the most iconic and timeless designs in history. And even though Herman Miller and Vitra produce all Eames-designed furniture around the world nowadays, Eames Office still exists to communicate, preserve, and extend the work of the influential design duo.
This includes celebrating its 80th anniversary in style, in part with an exhibition at Isetan in Tokyo. The display is running from Nov. 5 to Jan. 5, with a small selection of ltd. edition furniture pieces up for grabs, including the LCW Plywood Chair (1946) in a special edition duotone, the LAR Fiberglass Chair (1950) presented in an Alexander Girard checker split fabric, the Sofa Compact (1954) presented in a duotone fabric from Maharam, the Time-Life Stool (1960) presented in red-stained ash, and the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman (1956) presented in natural leather with a white oak shell. The latter is limited to only 10 examples.
Prices for the works for sale are being kept under wraps, for now at least. You'll have to visit the exhibition for further intel and buying details.
