Ray and Charles Eames’ Lounge Chair, perhaps the principle symbol of accessible Modernism, gets an appropriate four-color treatment with The Eames Lounge Chair: An Icon of Modern Design, an in-depth examination of chair’s creation and subsequent eminence. First conceived in the early 50’s as a modern answer to lounge chairs found in men’s clubs, the Eames Lounge chair has been in production ever since by Herman Miller. The book features keen examinations on the icon, with photographs and illustrations of the chair and its Eames predecessors, as well as documenting its evolution and cultural importance through the decades.
