The first Eames Eiffel chair is from 1948, but even today the piece is versatile, composing different environments and styles of decoration. Designed by designer couple Charles and Ray Eames (USA), the piece was much more affordable than the design furniture of the time. It is no accident that the chair won the international competition (Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design) from MOMA, after all, the molded fiberglass chairs were a real revolution.

Because of the architecture of the chair legs, the model became known as the Eiffel. You can’t deny that the base really resembles the tower, right? Today, in addition to appearing in many colors, the piece has many variations in the model and it is the acronyms that identify them.
