Measures 27 x 22 x 23 inches. In 1947, the Herman Miller furniture company gained exclusive market and distribution rights to the designs of Charles and Ray Eames whose work had just been the subject the first ever 'one-man' furniture exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. Eames furniture like this example with an Evans label are important because they were offered to the public in the early discovery period of Modern Design before the broad acceptance of Eameses' award-winning designs became eminent. After 1949 and the production of this chair, the rights to production and distribution are acquired from the Evans Products Company of Grand Haven, Michigan, and owned thereafter by Herman Miller.
