Eames‘ plasticchairs are omnipresent nowadays: practical, good-looking and loved by everyone. But when you’re not „everyone“ and would like to insert something special into your interior, here we’ve got a striking discovery: A pair of drafting chairs. Bright-red fibreglass sidechair shells on height-adjustable, swivelling drafting frames.
Often the designs by Ray and Charles Eames took part at historical events. Chess players Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky sat on Eames Lobby Chairs in Reykjavic during their legendary world championship fight in 1972. And drafting chairs like these featured prominently in the 1976 TV duel of incumbent US President Ford with his democratic challenger and later Nobel Peace Prize winner Jimmy Carter.
The drafting chairs, designed by Ray & Charles Eames, produced by Herman Miller since 1958, can be rotated and tilted and are also height-adjustable. The frames have been completely restored by our Vitra restorer, the „Crimson“-red bowls in a very good vintage condition.
Whether you want to become president, equip your bar (or both), these unusual drafting chairs are a great opportunity to own something special from Eames.
