  1. Reportedly, the inspiration for the lounge chair was a well-worn leather baseball glove which translated into something familiar, soft yet firm, comfortable, and ready to “catch” the person sitting down in it. Brilliant concept and execution, as per usual for the Eames.

  2. This is great- but boy her voice is annoying…

  3. Thanks for posting this–the Eamses are so unassuming. Such great accomplishments by the two of them–talk about classic designs. It’s like Jacobsen’s stuff–just impossible to beat the elegance and intelligence of the design.

  4. We bought our eames copy from siedasi – just google them, great quality just like the original

  5. Really awesome video

  6. Thank you so much for posting this. Here we have two extremely talented, brilliant people who gave us so much in the field of architecture and furniture design. I bought my Eames Lounge Chair years ago, and no other chair has ever been more comfortable, a tangible tribute to the Eames’ genius. Thank you.
