You know it at first glance – it's an Eames design. Timeless, sophisticated, refined. The lithe Aluminum Group chair bears the distinctive stamp of Charles and Ray Eames, the most famous design couple in the world. This graceful silhouette sits equally well in retro interiors, elegant lobbies, or hip young offices. Add executive, management, side, and lounge models, and there's everything you need for a statement of enduring design excellence.
It's uncanny. A chair designed in 1958 as outdoor seating still manages to look both classic and contemporary in 21st century interiors. The chairs' clean, trim lines make them appropriate for all kinds of places, from classic and contemporary homes to elegant offices to hip startups. The Aluminum Group, also upholstered in traditional fabric or leather, is ribbed at 1 7/8-inch intervals for a clean, refined appearance. The Cygnus mesh option has a lighter-scaled, translucent quality
Never ones to favor style over substance, Charles and Ray Eames gave this chair an innovative suspension that creates a firm, flexible "sitting pocket" that conforms subtly to the body's shape. They created that suspension by stretching a continuous piece of seat-back upholstery tautly between lightweight aluminum side ribs.
