Why the Eames Chair is achingly timeless, even in 2017
There are some design icons which have aged gracefully and look the part today. Take for example British Rail’s InterCity 125 designed by Sir Kenneth Grange which entered service in 1976. Also the anglepoise lamp, again by the same fellow and used in art studios and computer desks around the world. Few examples of furniture design age gracefully. The Eames Chair is a clear exception.
