Charles and Ray Eames Fiberglass Shell Bench

About the Item

Bench, 2 fiberglass seat shells, 1970s, design Charles & Ray Eames, metal frame with chrome-plated sled feet, very good vintage condition Height 81 cm, width 115 cm, depth 55 cm American couple Charles and Ray Eames are known worldwide for their influential modern design in the fields of architecture, graphics, furniture and product design, all characterized by a playful, clean aesthetic that is both accessible and enduring. Their work parallels the evolution of post-war American design, from the rise of the West Coast to the global expansion of American culture. Almost every design from the Eames workshop became a popular collector's item. Notable designs include La Chaise, which was developed for MoMA's International Competition for Low-Cost Furnitures (1948); the Molded Fiberglass Chairs (1950); the Eames Storage Unit (1950-52); Lounge Chair & Ottoman (1956); and the Aluminum Group Office Chairs (1958), which are manufactured by both Herman Miller in the U.S. and Vitra in Europe. The couple received various awards during their lifetime and posthumously, including the Museum of Modern Art's Organic Furniture Competition Award (1940); the Emmy in Graphics for The Fabulous Fifties (1960); the Kaufmann International Design Award (1961); the 25 Year American Institute of Architects Award (1977); the Eliot Norton Chair of Poetry, Harvard (1971); the Queen's Gold Medal for Architecture (1979); the "Most Influential Designer of the 20th Century" award from WORLDESIGN (1985); Industrial Designers Society of America (1985); and The Work of Charles and Ray Eames: A Legacy of Invention, Traveling Exhibition by the Library of Congress (1999).
