Wire -Chair . Charles and Ray Eames- Code 695

With this innovative project, the Eames demonstrate a detachment from the pure aesthetic form, and a particular attention to ergonomics and functionality of the seat.

The intent is just to demonstrate that, even with the naked structure, the skeleton, you can get a comfortable and comfortable seat.

The integrity of the shape was fundamental for them.

“The best for the most part, with the minimum” … this is the assumption at the base of their thinking.

In 1950 the Eames studio began to experiment with what could be obtained with iron wire, bent and welded.

The intgration of the triangular-shaped cushion gave the nickname to the chair.

It was so called “Bikini-chair”.

The base is particularly low because it was designed as a conversation chair.
