Eames Low Back Ribbed Meeting Chair by Herman Miller
Sorry, currently out of stock
You know it at first glance - it’s an Eames design. Bearing the distinctive stamp of Charles and Ray Eames, the most famous design couple in the world, its graceful silhouette sits equally well in retro interiors, elegant homes or hip young offices. The chairs we have on offer are in black with carpet glides. Aluminium Group chairs began as a challenge among legendary designers. Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard were designing the Columbus, Indiana, home of J. Irwin Miller, founder of Cummins Engines. They wanted a high-quality seating product for outdoor use and asked Charles and Ray Eames to develop one. Known for their honest use of materials, the Eameses constructed their chairs with cast aluminium and a seat frame meant to support a stretched synthetic mesh. The seat-back suspension was a major technical achievement and represented a departure from the concept of the chair as a solid shell. Herman Miller began making the Aluminium Group chairs in 1958, and they have been in continuous demand ever since. The chairs’ simple lines, innovative use of materials, and suspension comfort have kept the Aluminium Group and Soft Pad chairs among the most popular seating choices for both offices and homes for over 50 years.
