Design Charles & Ray Eames, 1954
Steel frame/legs, urethane foam, upholstery
Made by Herman Miller

"Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design."
-Charles Eames

The sofa compact's striking profile and crisp, light scale evolved from a built-in sofa that Charles and Ray Eames designed for the living room of their Pacific Palisades home. Knowing this makes the name "compact" seem less curious for a sofa that's over 6 feet long and provides such comfortable support from shoulders to knees.

With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."

The light-scaled Eames sofa compact gives all the comfort usually associated with long, low, heavy sofas. Two horizontal foam pads form the sofa's comfortably high back. A black enameled steel frame and chrome-plated tubular steel legs provide the foundation. It fits well where bulkier, traditional sofas don't and is perfectly scaled for tight spaces in executive suites, lounges and homes. The sofa has been in continuous production by Herman Miller since 1954.

Eames

The primary need of the human being was an essential component of every design for Eames. They believed a design to be successful when it catered to how people are similar to one another instead of addressing idiosyncrasies, benefitting the greatest number of people.
Herman Miller is synonymous with “modern” furniture. Creative director George Nelson recruited contemporaries Charles & Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, and Noguchi to create a legendary furniture collection.
