Eames Office x Globe: Limited Edition Lounge Chair Skateboard


SKU: 96901 5-7 Days

In a nod to 19956, the year the Eameses first presented their iconic Lounge Chair and Ottoman, this skateboard is limited to 56 units.

Sharing a similar appreciation for craftsmanship, details, and “taking your pleasure seriously”, Globe and Eames Office are proud to continue their collaboration with the ultimate mid-century modern skateboard.

In homage to the Lounge and Ottoman’s plywood shells, carefully selected Palisander veneers are used for the outer layers of the skateboard deck, and its edges are beveled flat just like in the Eames’ furniture design. Impeccably matched to the material used for the Lounge Chair’s cushions, black full-grain leather is inset into the veneer on the top, while on the underside custom hardware is mounted with CNC-milled aluminum slide rails mirroring the chair’s backrest spacers.

The Limited Edition Lounge Skateboard comes in a plywood crate printed with an original drawing from the Eames Office.  The skateboard further includes its own presentation stand and a certificate of authenticity signed by the Director of the Eames Office and one of Globe’s founders.

More About Globe

Charles & Ray Eames are among the most influential American designers of the 20th century, best known for their innovative contributions to architecture, furniture design, industrial design, photographic arts, and perhaps most importantly, pioneers of the press Globe uses today to make skateboards. Sharing in a similar appreciation for craftsmanship, details, and “taking your pleasure seriously”, the Eames Office is proud to present an on-going collaboration with Globe.

The Globe ReGrowth Program offsets their timber use by partnering with the National Forest Foundation (NFF) to donate to their tree-planting program. Globe’s yearly donations to the NFF help plant more than three times the amount of trees they harvest annually in making their skateboards.
