No doubt that Charles and Ray Eames contributed a lot into what we call as the modern furniture today. The couple was and still is appreciated in design world and their furniture designs are yet to decorate and create comfortable living in many homes.
Matthew Strong brings a whole new meaning to furniture design by re-imagining one of Eames furniture. Strong’s design is based on the Eames fiberglass shell armchair series which was design in 1950’s and its prototypes can be seen at theHenry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.
Charles Eames once said “The role of the designer is that of a very good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guests.” With the design of fiberglass shell armchair the Eames have created a new approach in furniture that is simple yet fits any body and every place.
The reborn Carbon Fiber Eames Sofa pursuits the purpose of the original piece as Matthew Strong explains “It’s transparency lays bare its own construction methodology, and allows visual access to every part of the base, giving it an aesthetic coherence that feels both uncanny and curiously natural.”
The reborn sofa is made by using 12k carbon fiber tow with a traditional woven caning pattern with modern components and standard approaches. The Carbon Fiber Eames Sofa is strong enough to hold numerous sitters and light enough to move it around easily.
