Vitra Eames Wool Blanket Dots
Vitra Eames Wool Blanket Dots – The ‘Dot Pattern’ featured on the Eames Wool Blanket was created in 1947 in conjunction with an exhibition at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. The large-scale composition of crossed lines and dots is reminiscent of the abstract paintings by Ray Eames from the 1930s.
- Material: 100% Merino lambswool, produced in a jacquard weave.
- Characteristics: Merino lambswool is a high-quality natural fibre obtained from the first shearing of Merino lambs. It is extremely light, fine and soft to the touch while also providing optimal warmth and thermal balance.
- Quality: working with premium natural fibres requires considerable technical know-how and manual skill. For this reason, Vitra blankets are made by a German blanket manufacturer with over 100 years of experience in fabricating products from natural fibres. Their expert hand craftsmanship ensures the high-quality execution of the designs.
Charles and Ray Eames
Charles and Ray Eames are counted among the most important figures of twentieth-century design. Their work spans the fields of furniture design, filmmaking, photography and exhibition design. Vitra is the sole authorised manufacturer of Eames products for Europe and the Middle East. When you own an Eames product made by Vitra, you know it is an original.
Charles and Ray Eames spent many years experimenting with new techniques for producing three-dimensionally moulded plywood seat shells that followed the contours of the human body. They achieved this with the chairs in the Plywood Group, which have matured into classics with an appearance that still looks contemporary today. For the Plywood Group, they also combined the seats and backs with different bases.
Thanks to the organic shape of the plywood shells and the slightly flexible backrests, these light and compact chairs offer great comfort – also in the versions without upholstery.A family business for eighty years,
