Herman Miller introduced the Eames Aluminium Group in 1958 as Charles and Ray Eames’ response to the need for high-quality indoor-outdoor furniture. It soon moved inside exclusively. In 2008, Herman Miller celebrated the chair that 50 years ago came in from the cold. This design remains a classic of style and comfort.
The Aluminium Group seat pads have layered construction with fabric or leather upholstery; Soft Pad models add 50mm thick foam cushions for comfort and a different look. The chairs’ clean trim lines make them appropriate for all kinds of places, from contemporary homes to elegant offices.
With one-piece, curved aluminium side ribs and an aluminium base, the chair is strong, yet lightweight and easy to move.
