Eames Time Life Lobby chair ca 1970

A beautiful of Time Life lobby chair dating from the 1970's. Designed in 1960 by Charles Eames for the Time Life Building in Manhattan.
That's why some people call them Time-Life chairs. The chair was developed to meet the need for a comfortable chair that was smaller than the Eames lounge chair. In 1972, chess grand master Bobby Fischer specifically requested the Eames executive chair while he competed in the World Chess Championship in Reykjavik, Iceland. He said he could concentrate well in the chair. When opponent Boris Spaasky saw it, he refused to play until he was given one as well. This chair dates from the late 1960's/early 1970's.

It features a polished aluminum frame and sumptuous tufted cushions in the original black leather which is in very good with no buttons missing. The leather shows some wear on the armrests. Metal frame with no damage, swivel works perfectly. All elements professionally cleaned an polished.
The chair sits on four plastic glides. This is the slightly wider "Lobby" version of the chair which is no longer produced by Herman Miller, unlike the narrower executive version.
