Eames® Chair, Cygnus Mesh, Polished Aluminum Legs

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller®
When Charles and Ray Eames designed the Eames Aluminum Management Chair and Side Chair (1958), they created a revolution in seating that has lost none of its edge. These chairs were originally developed as a special project for a private residence being designed by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard. Moving away from the Eameses' shell forms of the 1940s and exploring newly affordable aluminum, the designers constructed a lightweight, corrosion-resistant and die-cast frame. They wrapped the frame in a sling - a "sitting pocket" that subtly conforms to the body's shape - and gave it a wide seat for leisurely sitting. The Cygnus Mesh upholstery, introduced by Herman Miller in 2001, was specifically engineered to fit the characteristics of the Eames Aluminum Group. The mesh material is a self-contouring, flexible material that provides even weight distribution and long-term comfort. Set on a five-point base, these chairs sit on tubular steel columns and swivel for easy entry and exit. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.
