You know what they say – all things are temporary, unless they were designed by Charles Eames. This chair was not. However, there is something unmistakably Eamesian about the shape and the use of the materials. The Shrimp Armchair, designed by Jehs+Laub for Cor, is a new twist on the universally loved classic. The piece appeals to all human senses with its elegant curves, firm support, and refined workmanship. As Design Milk pointed out, the leather looks as though it sinks directly into the plywood, which creates the effect of lightness. Truly mesmerizing piece of design. And who knows, maybe in half a century the Shrimp Armchair will be the one to emulate.
