2010 Designer Furniture World Cup: USA 1-France 0
Neither attempt was quite good enough to break through a solid Eames defence; although were good enough to keep Charles and Ray Eames on the back foot and so prevent them making any meaningful first half advances.
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec started the second half in much the same fashion as the first; a Steelwood chair and shelving combination for Magis posing a tough challenge for Charles and Ray Eames.
The pair responded to the challenge however producing a quickfire DSR, DAR, RAR triple to deflect the Bouroullec’s advances.
With the match heading for an apparent draw Charles and Ray Eames produced a sensuous La Chaise to take a hard fought victory and qualify for the semi-finals.
