Originally designed in 1960 for the lobby of New York’s Rockefeller Center, the ES 104 Lobby Chair by Charles and Ray Eames still looks as smart and contemporary as any other chair on the market.
If you’ve got the money, this really is the ultimate office chair – a swivel-based armchair with a generous amount of padded leather upholstery to sink into and a die-cast aluminium frame that’s height-adjustable.
If the thought of kicking back in an ES 104 appeals, the good news is that you can still pick them up, made to order, from various retailers, including the Conran Shop. The bad news? One single chair will cost you around £3,430.
