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 modeled 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 environmentincluding temperature and humidity levels. Chairs are not made from a singlesolid block of wood and are assembledusing dowels and glue. Unlike a metal chair that is welded or a plastic chairthat is made in a single mold, based on use and conditions these dowels andglue can loosen over time and may require regular maintenance to keep themperforming. Due to the common nature of this upkeep, regardless ofmanufacturer, resources are readily available online or through your localupholstery or millwork supplier. This is not considered a defect or a warrantyissue.
