A distinctive profile, a taut seat sling and soft, thick cushions: in concert, they yield the Eames Soft Pad Chair (1969). Able to be used in a variety of home, lobby and office settings, the chair evolved from the Eames Aluminum Group – furniture originally developed for a private residence designed by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard. With the addition of two-inch-thick seat cushions, the Soft Pad Chair retains the style of the earlier group, but gains significant comfort. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller®, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller.

Yet Charles and Ray Eames created more than a "look" with their bent plywood chairs or molded fiberglass seating. They had ideas about making a better world, one in which things were designed to fulfill the practical needs of ordinary people and bring greater simplicity and pleasure to our lives. Read more >
