Eames Bikini Wire Chair by Herman Miller
designed by Charles and Ray Eames


Eames Bikini Wire Chair At A Glance:
First introduced in 1951, the Eames Wire Chair was an immediate hit. Distinctively, unmistakably Eames, this chrome metal chair has stood the test of time and is as popular today as it was half a century ago. This uniquely upholstered version features a seat and back pad that reveals the beautifully crafted wire frame - a style that is affectionately known as the "bikini chair."

What's To Like:
For style, the Bikini Chair gets an "A" - it's got just the right mixture of chrome and leather (colorful or monochrome). You can go industrial with black leather, minimalist with white leather, or carnival with lagoon or cherry leather.

What's Not to Like:
The leather pad goes a long way towards making the Wire Chair a comfortable seat, but it still won't be a comfortable long-term (read: 1 hour) seat. You'll get a sore bum if you stay put for long.

The Bottom Line:
A prime example of the Eameses use of welded wire, the Bikini Wire Chair is small, light, and has a beautifully crafted Eiffel Tower base for added character. All that remains is for your to choose which leather you love most!

Details:

  • Overall: 32.75" h x 19.75" w x 21.25" d
  • Seat height: 16.5"
  • Chrome frame with leather upholstery
  • Elegantly crafted Eiffel Tower base



Leather Options:

  • Stock Leather
    Chromium free and from Austria this stock Herman Miller leather is a winner for most. With a matte, soft feel this is the most popular leather used on Herman Miller upholstered items.
  • Open Line Leather
    Austrian by birth, yours by choice. Open Line leather is closest to the stock Herman Miller leathers but available in a wider array of colors.

In the Eames design studio, Charles and Ray were never satisfied with working with traditional materials and the constraints they placed on the forms they envisioned. After all, it was Charles and Ray who had developed new ways to mold wood that were so successful that their discoveries were used in numerous ways by the US Navy during World War II. That same molded plywood, and then molded plastic, ended up as materials in innovative chairs produced in the 1940s. Never content to repeat themselves, in the early 1950s, the Eameses and their design staff turned to bent and welded wire. Inspired by trays, dress forms, and baskets, the designers developed a variety of pieces, including Eames wire chairs.
