A versatile heirloom, revitalized

Charles and Ray Eames designed this group of sculptural wood stools in 1960 in a number of shapes for the lobbies of the Time & Life Building at Rockefeller Center in New York City. This new shape—two compact cylinders separated by a graceful concave neck—is part of that original group.

New shape for timeless design

Every component of the Eames Turned Stool is individually carved to ensure each link and curve is crafted with the utmost care. This versatile stool is now available in a fourth shape - designed in 1960 but never manufactured - and new ebonized ash finish.

Designed to be versatile

Deep enough to form a comfortable seat and shallow enough to balance a cup of coffee - that’s how Ray Eames described the depressions on the ends of this sculptural stool.

Quintessentially Eames

“What works good is better than what looks good, because what works good lasts,” Ray Eames once said. In true Eames fashion, Eames Turned Stool does all three. The design is quintessentially Eamesian in its systems approach. The ends are standard across all versions of the stool, while the midsection of each pedestal features a unique arrangement of curves and angles.
