U.S.A.1971The "Loose Cushion Armchair" of 1971 was the the last chair designed by Charles Eames. Though similar to the much more common Eames chairs with all-fiberglass shells, it was substantially modified in form (the taller back being the most obvious refinement), and was made using a highly innovative process that was awarded several patents. An executive desk chair that swivels, tilts, and adjusts for height, the Loose Cushion Armchair was available in a variety of upholstery materials, most of them vinyl or fabric. This is a rare example covered in leather, beautifully stitched with double French seams. In 1973, Arthur Drexler, Director of the Museum of Modern Art’s Department of Architecture and Design, waxed poetic about the Loose Cushion Armchair: "Technically, this chair is among Eames’ most sophisticated and carefully studied productions… Sleek, polished, impeccably detailed, the molded and padded shell of this chair suggests the world of aviation. It also manages to be at once precise and voluptuous, and seems to convey as much of the mood or image of its day as the plywood furniture did in the ‘forties." Needless to say, the Loose Cushion Armchair is in MOMA’s permanent collection. (Please note: though the chair rides on castors, these can be removed and replaced with glides, lowering the chair several inches, and making it suitable for use as a lounge chair.)
