With everything from chairs and desks to end tables and sofas, it’s all you’ll need to relive those fantasies of dog-fighting in a bi-plane that you had as a kid, only this time you’ll be doing it from the comfort and safety of your (well decorated) home office.

…It’s Movie Monday: A Gathering of Elephants?

Eames Elephant

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Charles Eames’ birth, the Vitra Design Museum and the Eames Office teamed up to produce a limited edition run of the elephant that Charles and Ray Eames designed in 1945, but never put into production.

The Eames are famous for their chair, the Eames Lounge Chair, which is said to be the breakthrough design for one of the most influential design teams of the twentieth century.

The elephant features the swooping wood look that made the chair so famous, and will undoubtedly be highly sought after by the hoards of Eames collectors.

…Office chairs aren’t comfortable?

Freedom Chair

The Aeron chair is synonymous with the rise and fall of the dot com bomb, but a new breed of chairs is taking aim at the unpoped Web2.0 bubble. Examples include Humanscale’s Freedom chair, with “a counterbalance system that adjusts itself like scales to the sitter’s weight as he or she reclines, eliminating the need for recline controls”. Lower back pain, your days are numbered.
