The Eames Office is thrilled to announce our collaboration with Vitra on the launch of eco-friendly Eames Fiberglass Chairs—the result of work that began soon after we discontinued the previous fiberglass chairs in the early 1990s. The design is available in the six original colors created by Charles and Ray Eames: Elephant hide gray, navy blue, parchment, raw umber, red orange, and sea foam green.

On view at Salone del Mobile, Vitra, Hall 20, Stand B07/C12.

See two new veneers and a new base finish for the Eames Plywood Group by Vitra that provide additional interior design options. The latest versions are available in walnut with a dark pigmented finish and in ash with new natural finish. In addition, the black powder-coated metal base can now be combined with the Eames Coffee Table and all versions of the Eames chair shell. These new wood veneers are also available for the Coffee Table Metal (CTM) and Eames Folding Screen.

It includes a wealth of Eames designs, such as the mold for the reissue of La Chaise, made in cooperation with the Eames Office; this design was one of the first products released after Ray’s death, underscoring the Eames Office’s ongoing collaboration with Vitra.

The show also includes the ESU, ETR, Eames Folding Screen, Eames Hang It All, several types of Eames Plastic and Fiberglass Chairs, the DTM-2 Foldable Table, Eames Mobiles, the Eames Lounge Chair, Lobby Chair, Aluminum Group, and much, much more!

The Eames Office is supporting the showcasing of emerging designers who respond to our work. This one-off piece by Point Supreme, Emaillerie Belge, and Colophone, is on view in Wallpaper* Handmade, the magazine’s annual exhibition devoted to craft, creativity, and collaboration, held during Salone del Mobile each year. The work features a classic Charles Eames quote to align with this year’s exhibition theme: “motivational mottos.” The collaborators believe the one above is as relevant as ever. The design is produced in enamelled metal for the exhibition, and it will be documented in the August print edition of the magazine, as well as on Wallpaper.com.
