Iconic Eames Collection Re-Designed Solely In Black
The furniture collection gets a color update with black gaining most of the attention at this year's Milan Design Week.
In collaboration with Eames Office, European furniture brand Vitra has come out with an update of the iconic Eames Collection. The updated collection featured the classic pieces in new colors that were previously unavailable and new materials that gave the designs a fresh and modern look. The collection debuted at the Salon del Mobile in Milan and it was the all-black color scheme that caught everyone’s attention.
The all-black update included the Plastic Chairs, Wire Chair, Lounge Chair and Ottoman, and the Stool, Model D. The Lounge Chair and Ottoman now has shells in black lacquered ash and comes in black leather with all-black aluminum hardware. The Stool, Model D is also in black lacquered ash. Plastic Chairs DSW and DAW are in black plastic and fabric material and Wire Chairs DKR and DKW now come in powder-coated black. The Wire Chairs also come with reshaped cushions in new colors of fabric and leather. The Organic Chair now comes in more colors and an extended fabric palette, and a light oak base is now available for the first time.
