Ray + Charles Eames Time Life Lobby Chair in Chocolate Leather
A legendary office design by Ray and Charles Eames for the three modernist lobbies of the new Time Life Building in Manhattan, the Time Life Lobby chair has a polished aluminum frame and segmented, tufted cushions in leather upholstery. Leather armrests sit neatly on the aerodynamic curves of the metal frame, which is supported by a four-star base. Slightly wider than the Time Life Executive Chair, the lobby version sits on casters, though plastic glides are available as well if this option is preferred. Unlike the narrower executive version, the lobby chair is no longer produced by Herman Miller. This example, in chocolate brown leather, features the tilt-swivel mechanism.
Condition: Excellent vintage condition; professionally cleaned and polished. Small amounts of cosmetic wear to aluminum; leather is in pristine vintage condition.
Dimensions: 28.5” width x 27” depth x 33” height; seat height is 18” and arm height is 25”
