Carbon Fiber + Eames = FTW

Taking the iconic Eames Shell Chair and improving it for the modern world, Garageworks Industries did up the classic design in carbon fiber. Not strictly auto related maybe, but we can totally see this in our garage, as we idle away the hours talking about or working on our rides. Especially if those rides happen to have a healthy dose of cf themselves, like the Lambos in the pics. Just like the original Eames chair showed off its fiberglass construction for all the world to see, these GI chairs are bare cf, and they are gorgeous. The most unfortunate part is that the GI website isn't really set up and their blog doesn't talk about price or availability. But click over and you'll see a few pics of both the rocker and the regular shell chair (above), as well as a classic student chair too (right) - all beautiful.
