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. 2-3/4-inch-thick foam cushions make for comfortable sitting.
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.
Individually upholstered cushions. 2 3/4 inches thick. Brightly polished aluminum. Arms, frames, and bases. Executive and management models have seat-height and tilt-swivel adjustments.
Pneumatic lift and tilt lock are available as options on the management and executive models.
