This paper reviews the work of designer Charles Eames, focusing specifically on the Eames chair. The Eames chair is a relatively late modernist design that has become ubiquitous in offices, schools and many homes. This paper further discusses how this design has been an influence on the development of other furnishings expressing the same aesthetics and using many of the same materials and methods.

From the Paper:

"The modernist era extends from the 1920s to about the 1960s, with some dispute over when post-modernism begins and even what it entails. Modernism was an aesthetic development that became a movement once it was noticed and then deliberately practiced. Prior to that, Modernism began as part of an effort to create a new environment to replace the old around the beginning of the twentieth century, following in the wake of similar changes in political, social, literary, and other spheres of society. Modernism developed into a movement and by the 1920s was a conscious artistic expression manifested in painting, sculpture, drama, architecture, and design. "
