Herman Miller, a celebrated furniture brand knows how to make its presence felt. Leveraging the brand’s rich established legacy, the furniture giant has released the Eames Turned Stool. The stool is an updated creation inspired by designers Charles and Ray Eames’ inceptive design. Previously titled the Eames Walnut Stool, it now has an addition: an updated reinterpretation of the iconic build.
Adorning the lobbies of the Time-Life Building in New York City, this iconic Eames walnut collection has until now been available in solid-turned walnut and in three shapes. Eames Turned Stool adds a fourth shape to the collection, expanding the finish to include walnut or ebonized ash. The newest furniture contours a central section characterized by two thick, circular discs.
Playing upon its design, this sculptural stool is versatile in form and utility. The ingenious concave shape on the top and bottom of this stool gives the liberty to utilize it in several ways: as a side table and objet d’art. The Eames Turned Stool can also serve as a plant stand, a place to sit, or a spot to stack up your reading material.
Celebrating its centennial anniversary this year, Herman Miller has made all four Eames Turned Stools obtainable in the original solid-turned walnut as well as a newly introduced ebonized ash finish. Keeping the original dimensions and craftsmanship intact, the Eames stool in two subtle colors offers a worthy addition to your vintage furniture collection.
Initially, the Eames Office prototyped ten variations of the turned stool designs. Out of these, four were selected for the lobbies of the Time & Life Building, and three progressed toward Herman Miller’s product line. The Eames Turned Stool in walnut retails for $1,295 USD, while the ebonized ash option is priced at $995 USD.
