Charles Eames (1907 - 1978) was a designer and architect of U.S. origin.
Together with his wife Ray Eames, he significantly influenced the American post-war design and is particularly known for his furniture designs. These include the office and conference chairs (EA 117, 119, 219, 108, 208) coming from the Aluminium Group, stool (EA 125, EA 225) and lounge chairs (EA 124, EA 224).

His most famous work is the so-called Lounge Chair (1956), which represents a modern interpretation of a lounge chair. It is a laminated wood construction, which is based on a star-shaped swivel base and is covered with leather cushions. Foot extension serves as a stool or the so-called Ottoman. This construction is still regarded as an icon of modern furniture design.
Charles Eames died in 1978 at the age of 71 years in St. Louis, USA.
