Are they really stools? Places to sit? Are they tables? Plant stands? Accent pieces for homes, offices or lobbies? Yes. They’ve been called abstract chess pieces. Well, no. The centre section of the Eames Turned Stool is crafted in three distinctively shaped profiles. Choose the one you like, or choose two or three – the same or different. The Eames Turned Stool is made of turned walnut or ebonised ash; pick it up and you can instantly tell that it’s solid wood.
Designed for lobbies of the Time-Life Building in 1960, this stool functions as a place to sit or a small table. First introduced in walnut as Eames Walnut Stool, it’s now available in a new shape and in ebonised ash. The new name reflects the process still used to manufacture the stool. A museum curator once ordered two of these stools for his son and daughter. “Graduation gifts?” he was asked. “No,” he said, “the kids are only five and three. But I want them to have the experience of growing up with something truly good that they can keep all their lives.”
