Management Chair with Pneumatic Lift
The Eames® Aluminum Group Collection (1958) began as a special project for Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard, who needed seating for a home they were designing for industrialist J. Irwin Miller in Columbus, Indiana. The request was for leisure chairs light enough to move from indoors to out and strong enough to withstand the elements. At the time, Charles and Ray Eames were exploring ways to use aluminum, which had been strengthened, refined, and made more affordable since WWII. They constructed a lightweight die-cast frame for the project, then wrapped it in a sling – a taut “sitting pocket” that subtly conforms to the body’s shape. The result was a completely new type of seat and a departure from the idea of a chair as a solid shell. While the original concept was for outdoor seating, the Eameses quickly recognized its possibilities for indoor use. Backed by a 12-year manufacturer’s warranty. This is an authentic Eames chair by Herman Miller.
