Pushing boundaries was the core of Charles and Ray Eames’ design philosophy. The Eames Upholstered Task Chair takes a model that was first designed in 1953 and adds elements to its improve stability as well as to take its design in a new stylistic direction. Demetrios Eames carries on the tradition of his family by adding fabric upholstered by Alexander Girard to give the molded shell of the Task Chair a look fit for any environment.
Hopsak and checker fabric options give a distinctly different look to each version of the Task Chair. A white shell adds a stark contrast to the black and cobalt hopsak upholstery along with the black and white checkered fabric. The black on black and lurid orange hopsak versions of the chair extend the colorway of their upholstery to the chair’s shell. Regardless of the fabric, each Task Chair sits upon a die-cast aluminum five-star base with nylon casters that can roll across hardwood or carpet without damaging the floor. From its ergonomic base to its re-imaged seat, the Eames Upholstered Task Chair carries on the legacy of a name synonymous with impeccable taste.
