Charles and Ray Eames designed Eames® Executive Chairs in 1960 to grace the lobbies that they designed for the Time-Life Building in New York City. That's why some people call them Time-Life chairs. They were developed to meet the need for a comfortable chair that was smaller than the Eames Lounge Chair.
In 1972, chess grand master Bobby Fischer specifically requested the Eames Executive Chair while he competed in the World Chess Championship in Reykjavik, Iceland. He said he could concentrate well in the chair. When opponent Boris Spaasky saw it, he refused to play until he got one, too.
