...according to the "Design Story" on the Eames Executive chair from the Herman Miller site.
Designed in 1960 for the Time-Life building, these beauties have been eclipsed in the realm of instant recognition by the ultra well known Lounge and Ottoman (what chair hasn't been?) but have a distinctive cachet all their own.
Findable in their vintage (4-legged) state and purchasable new in the updated (5 legged) redesign, they are, like most Eames pieces, a luxury more than a rarity.
Anyone lucky enough to have one of these for your own personal chess tournaments?
