I have bought both the blue cashmere egg chair and the swan chair (same color) for our daughters new flat. The design is awesome, you have to arrange delivery yourself as they aren't allow to ship outside Ireland. Sounds as a pain but its super easy and cost 60€ for delivery to Frederiksberg with DSV, took two days.

Great Service, they keep their promise

The quality is amazing, it was ready after 6 weeks (not 6 months!). Really happy with the chair.

Helpfull staff!

I was unsecure about choosing Italian leather or go for the Danish cashmere, but got help on their live chat, they really know about their details. 122 Design is truly a heaven if you love cheap high quality stylish furnitures for your home.

Really Good Quality

I ordered my Egg Chair with Black Italian leather last month and have now received it. I'm really please with the seams and the attention to the details. The service was good, there was a nice catalog with the package and how best practice after care. Worth to sign up for their newsletters, they send out good inspiration emails.

Great service!

Had to change the colour after, and that was super easy. I spoke to David on the LiveChat and they quickly changed it. Really good aftercare, appreciate it was easy to get in touch with them and they solved my issue quickly, even on a Sunday. Now I have 4 lovely white chairs in my living room, they look beautiful and just in time for Christmas!

Really good quality, friendly livechat!

Always wanted the y chair for our new kitchen. Great quality (this was actually why I bought from 122 Design) and good support after my order. Smart with the livechat, I used that before I finally made up my mind. I think a lot of online furniture store could learn something from 122 Design!

Virkelig flot!

Elsie on Jul 09, 2016

People who pay the original price, must feel stupid. There is no difference, and the quality is really amazing at 122 Design

Elizabeth on Jul 09, 2016

Really good quality

High quality

Eleanor on Jun 09, 2016

But pleasantly purprised with the quality and it looks really nice in our house. I had to arrange my own delivery, it might sounds complicated and expensive but its not. When the product is about to be ready, they contact you. It took me 5 min and cost 39 euro for a lounge chair.

Amazing

I just want to make everyone aware, that the detailed quality of this lamp is just amazing. There is no difference in this one or what you can buy in e.g. Louis Poulsen, except you are saving a LOT of money. Ohh well, 122 Design is also open in the weekends. 6 weeks from ordered to ready!

Debra on Feb 10, 2016

My favorite chair. Bought two with my husband for their hunting house. We went for Walnut (a bit more expensive) but really nice quality.

Flot kvalitet

Deborah on Feb 09, 2016

Excellent Service and most importantly: perfect furniture. A bit of wait though.

Just a little tips

Dawn on Jan 09, 2016

I have ordered different designs inspired by the designer Eames and I gotta say there are all individually great, there is a nice finish to each of the designs and it is really easy to assemble. I thought first that all of them would be delivered assembled but the DSW and DAW comes in two part the feet and seat separate, but to be honest there is nothing as simple as those to build. Regarding the service, not a lot of follow up on order maybe this is something 122 Design could improve but apart from that I am just happy!

Charles Ormond Eames JR (1907-1978), også kaldet Charles Eames, var en amerikansk designer, stadig kendt i dag for sine værker inden for møble design, arkitektur eller filmindustrien. Han og hans kone Bernice Alexandra Eames, kaldet "Ray", arbejdede sammen om at udvikle det moderne design af det 20. århundrede. Hans værker betragtes som nogle af de vigtigste i efter-krigens designhistorie. Hans mest berømte værk er    Eames Lounge Chair, som stadig er virkelig populær i dag.


Eames, en banebrydende designer

Charles Eames studerede først arkitektur på Washington University of St. Louis, som han forlod kun to år efter. Faktisk, ifølge legenden, blev han udvist, fordi hans lærere afvist hans moderne og anderledes syn på arkitekturen på det tidspunkt.

Han mødte sin første kone, Catherine Woermann på dette universitet i Washington. Han giftede sig med hende i 1929. Samme år rejste han til Europa, hvor han opdagede værker af designere som Ludwig Mies van Rohe, Le Corbusier eller Eiliel Saarinen. De havde en stor indflydelse på hans eget fremtidige arbejde.

Efter sin tur, i 1930, åbnede Charles sin første arkitektur kontor, sammen med Charles Gray og Walter Pauley senere. Han gik kun tilbage til sine studier i 1938, på Cranbrook Kunstakademi i Michigan, takket være designeren Eiliel Saarinen, som inviterede ham. Senere ville han endda samarbejde med sin søn Eero Saarinen og vinde førstepladsen af en organisk design skabelse projektkonkurrencen. Under sine studier ved Kunstakademiet, mødte han sin anden kone og arbejdspartner Bernice Kaiser. Efter deres bryllup, tog de til Los Angeles, i Californien, hvor de tilbragte resten af deres liv.


Charles Eames: Designer, arkitekt, lærer and filmskaber

Eames havde mere end ét talent. Efter at have startet en arkitekt karriere interesserede han sig i det industrielle design, ligesom hans kone Ray, under den anden verdenskrig. Faktisk efter hans værker på den Støbte krydsfiner, støttede hæren dem til at producere nogle krigsmaterialer såsom benskinner, bårer og skrog. Efter krigen, besluttede de at anvende dette værk til at skabe og producere  design møbler og derefter bidrage til udviklingen af designets masseproduktion.

Senere fik han mulighed for at blive professor ved Kunstakademiet i Cranbrook, hvor han studerede sig selv og hvor han blev leder af den industrielle design afdelingen, som var hans speciale. Han gav også foredrag på det prestigefyldte universitet Harvard i 1970.

Med hensyn til arkitektur, skabte han mange bygninger såsom huse, broer eller endda kirker. Hans bedst kendte arbejde på dette område forbliver formentlig hans eget hus, "Eames House", en moderne arkitektonisk perle. Beliggende på en klippe med udsigt over Stillehavet, er bygningen blevet hjemmelavet, fra præfabrikerede og samlede dele. Eames designede også et hus for Herman Millers søn, producenten af deres møbler. Dette hus ligger i Zeeland, Michigan, var for det meste inspireret af det skandinaviske design, med sin cedertræ ydre.

Endelig, er den sidste lidenskab, for Charles og Ray, billeder og biografen. Efter bilæggelse i Los Angeles, begyndte de at skabe kortfilm. Fra deres første film "The unfinished Traveling Boy" i 1950 til deres sidste i 1982, lykkedes det dem at kommunikere deres filosofi i form af eksperimenter, uddannelse og design. De innoverede også i denne filmindustri, ved at skabe virkelig fordybende erfaringer, ligesom filmen "House of Science" i 1962, udgivet i Seattle. Ved at bruge en oval skærm og flere billeder, præget af den hastighed og perspektivet, har de lavet denne film en futuristisk og unikt kunstværk.

Charles og Ray Eames har arbejdet og lykkes i mange fag. Nysgerrig om alt, lavede de altid dyb research for at nå deres projekter. Det er derfor, de også deltog i skabelsen af forskellige udstillinger. Den mest berømte var The Franklin og Jefferson Udstilling i Paris i 1975, hvor de skabte designet.


Nye teknikker i tjenesten af moderne design

I 1946, blev de eksperimentelle værker af støbt krydsfiner før og under krigen fra Eames parret, udstilliet i Modern Art Museum i New York. Efter dette besluttede Herman Miller og hans virksomhed, tre år senere, at producere og sælge deres design møbler. Den møble kollektion var en stor succes på det tidspunkt, og denne succes forblev den samme, indtil i dag. Takket være det, fik Charles Eames hans gode berømmelse.

Denne succes var mest på grund af det faktum, at Eames fortsatte med at innovere og udvikle teknikker til at fremstille sine møbler. Efter støbt krydsfiner, introducerede han også glasfiber møbler, plast harpiks stole og trådnet stole. Blandt hans mest populære værker, er der  Eames gyngestol og Eames Lounge Chair, den støbte krydsfinér stol DCW (Dining Chair Wood), eller metal stol DMC med sin krydsfiner sæde. En af hans mest populære skabelser forbliver lufthavnens sæder, der er udviklet i 1962 for lufthavnen O'Hare og bredt reproduceret siden.

Charles idé var at indføre et rationelt og komfortabelt design. Hans kone og ham selv var overbevist om, at komfort og ergonomi var nøglerne til moderne design, og at alle skal have frihed til at have sin egen smag med hensyn til indretning. Mens alle kvinder på det tidspunkt fulgte nogle regler for at organisere og dekorere deres hjem, tilbød Eames en ny vision for, hvad der bør være det indvendige design. Der er ikke kun én måde at dekorere vores hus, vi skal eksperimentere og gøre det i henhold til vores egen smag.

Forsøget var faktisk et vigtigt element i parrets arbejde. I 1958 blev de de første mennesker til at åbne et teknisk center for test af effektivitet, pålidelighed og design af møbler, de havde forestillet sig. De har altid testet for at gøre deres visioner virkelige. Ved denne måde, skabte de ideelle møbler, som de kunne reproducere og duplikere i store mængder. For eksempel, opdigtede Charles 13 versioner af aluminium stolen DMC før fremstillingen af en god en. Denne teknik var også præcis for deres arkitektoniske værker. For eksempel, skabte han en prototype af sit eget hus i et dukkehus format, udstyret med miniature reproduktioner af alle sine møbler.


Eames møbler i dag

I øjeblikket produceres hans mest emblematiske møbler stadig af Herman Miller og Vitra selskaber fx.  Eames DSW stol. Der blev for eksempel solgt over seks millioner eksemplarer af The Lounge Chair siden lanceringen. Mange kopier af møblerne er til salg i hele verden.

Du kan også beundre Charles værker og en kopi af hans kontor på tidspunktet for hans død, på Vitra Design Museum i byen Weil am Rhein i Tyskland. Museet hylder dette kreative geni og hans kone, hvis modernisme og kreativitet har inspireret mange designere i årtier.
