You know it at first glance - it's an Eames design. Timeless, sophisticated, refined. In 1969, Charles and Ray Eames, the most famous design couple in the world, added cushions to their Aluminum Group to create Soft Pad chairs. This comfortable and luxurious chair sits equally well in retro interiors, elegant lobbies, or hip young offices. Add executive, management, side, and lounge models, and you have 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.
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.
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.
Pneumatic lift and tilt lock are available as options on the management and executive models.
