When George Nelson asked Charles Eames to help in the design of the U.S. pavilion at the Moscow world exhibition in 1959, they needed to work fast. Eames called his friend Henry Luce, the chairman of Time-Life, to ask that Time-Life's vast archive of images be open to him. Luce's only condition was that Eames return the help one day.

A year after the exhibition in Moscow—a great success, featuring Eames's multi-screen slide show, a first—Luce called to ask Eames for a chair for the executive floors of his new building. The Eameses responded with the Time-Life chair and walnut stools. We still produce them, and with our new MCL Leather offering, we are returning the soft hand that characterized the original.
