High-quality reproduction inspired by Charles and Ray Eames’ design.
In 1960, American designers Charles and Ray Eames were commissioned by the chair of Time-Life company to furnish three lobbies at the Time-Life Building at Rockefeller Center in New York City. Tasked with transforming the interior of these lobbies, the Eameses designed a series of chairs to furnish the lobbies as well as a series of wooden stools modelled on chess pieces, among them the Rook Stool. With a sculptural element that makes these stools truly unique, these stools were also intended to double as side tables.
As a natural material, wood is subject to effects of the environment including temperature and humidity levels. Chairs are not made from a single solid block of wood and are assembled using dowels and glue. Unlike a metal chair that is welded or a plastic chair that is made in a single mold, based on use and conditions these dowels and glue can loosen over time and may require regular maintenance to keep them performing. Due to the common nature of this upkeep, regardless of manufacturer, resources are readily available online or through your local upholstery or millwork supplier. This is not considered a defect or a warranty issue.
