Antique Charles Eames chairs manufactured by ICF in Italy

Although well known to collectors, it is not general knowledge that up until 2004 these iconic Charles Eames designs were also manufactured in Italy by the furniture makers ICF.

ICF - made according to the original design of Charles Eames  

Based in Milan, ICF were one of the four original manufacturers who were granted a license by Herman Miller inc. to reproduce Charles Eames chairs.

ICF manufactured licensed originals until the 1st January 1986, when Vitra, based in Switzerland, were granted sole manufacturing rights for Europe and the Middle East.

From 1986 onwards, ICF continued to manufacture these chairs without a license, until they were forced to stop in 2004 by an Italian court ruling.

Now that ICF no longer manufacture these chairs, their rarity has only added to their value and used versions of the ICF chair are much sought after by Charles & Ray Eames collectors across the globe.

At our central London show room, Scott Howard is pleased to display a small selection of these ICF chairs, so that our customers can see some of the rarer versions of these iconic designs not generally on display to the public.

ICF Charles Eames Aluminium High Back Chair  

Shown here are two examples from our collection, which although not for sale, are sure to be of interest to serious Charles Eames collectors.

In the left hand picture, we show an ICF high backed aluminium group chair in red hopsack fabric. Collectors will notice the old-style tilt mechanism handle.

In the lower picture, we show an ICF netweave visitors chair. Again, collectors will notice the five star base and the more eagle-eyed will be able to see the original ICF sticker on the central column.
