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).

    By Charles and Ray Eames, Zenith, Herman Miller
    Located in Brooklyn, NY
    Charles Eames (1907-1978) & Ray Eames (1912-1988) for Zenith Plastics / HermanMiller DAR Eiffel rope-edge chair Venice, California / Zeeland, Michigan, 1950 fiberglass, enameled steel early sticker label Measures: 24 7/8" W x 23 5/8" D x 31 3/8" H All original parts, including rare first gen. feet, which date the piece to the first batch of production (1950). Labelled. Gorgeous museum worthy piece. Quite possibly one of the most famous and iconic chairs ever, the Eames DAR would most commonly become known as the ‘eiffel chair’ due to its sculptured wire base resembling that of Europe’s most notorious landmark. The very first generation of the Eames DAR Eiffel Chair was recognizable not only for the ‘rope edge’ shell but also due to the protruding ‘1st gen’ feet as opposed to boot glides or later plastic feet. The abbreviated Eames DAR Chair stands for the Eames Dining (D) height, Arm (A) Chair, on Rod (R) Base released in the first year of arm chair production of the fiberglass series developed to the marketplace in 1950. The early success of the Eames arm chairs, released in 1950, was a co-ordinated effort between the Eames . Office (Designers), Zenith Plastics (Manufacturers) and Herman Miller (Distributors). The chair series was always designed to have interchangeable bases and the DAR was one of the ‘original 5’ alongside the DAX X-base, LAR cats cradle...
