The Lobby Chair ES 108 Conference Chair was designed by Charles and Ray Eames for the manufacturer Vitra.
In 1989, this Swiss firm celebrated its contribution to modern décor by opening a design museum by architect Frank Gehry. Two of the names on its roll call of talent, Charles and Ray Eames rank among the most important American designers of the post-war period. A sleek modern take on traditional opulence, the Vitra ES 108 Lobby Chair Conference Chair is a characteristic example of the Eames husband-and-wife team's work.
Made of die-cast aluminium with a chrome treatment and covered in high-gloss leather, the Vitra ES 108 Lobby Chair Conference Chair is 86.5cm in height and 69cm in width, with a seat height of 40cm. The rounded shape of the cushions adds to its invitingly slick, "wet look" finish. Meanwhile, touches such as the buttoned backrest, the exposed welts to the aluminium side panels and the conical leg-ends demonstrate the designers' eye for compelling detail. Exuding contemporary sophistication, the ES 108 Lobby Chair Conference Chair works as suitable seating for high-level business meetings.
