Description

Smart thinking.

The Eames® Aluminum Group Collection (1958) began as a special project for Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard, who needed seating for a home they were designing for industrialist J. Irwin Miller in Columbus, Indiana. The request was for leisure chairs light enough to move from indoors to out and strong enough to withstand the elements. At the time, Charles and Ray Eames were exploring ways to use aluminum, which had been strengthened, refined and made more affordable since WWII. They constructed a lightweight die-cast frame for the project, then wrapped it in a sling – a taut “sitting pocket” that subtly conforms to the body’s shape. The result was a completely new type of seat and a departure from the idea of a chair as solid shell. While the original concept was for outdoor seating, the Eameses quickly recognized its possibilities for indoor use. Backed by a 12-year manufacturer’s warranty. This is an authentic Eames chair by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.



Thoughtful design.

Engineered for decades of enjoyable use, this chair features a durable aluminum frame with pneumatic seat height adjustment, 360-degree swivel, tilt-tension and tilt-lock mechanisms and carpet casters with hoods. (To order casters for hardwood floors, visit a DWR Studio or call 1.800.944.2233.) To raise seat height, lift lever up while taking your weight off chair. To lower, lift lever up while seated. Constructed of 61% recycled materials, it’s also 88% recyclable at the end of its useful life.

  • A classic in continuous production since 1958.
  • Seat height instantly adjusts with the lift of a lever.
  • This is an authentic Herman Miller Eames chair.
  • The configuration of this chair is a registered trademark.
  • 12-year warranty

Design is for living. That maxim shaped a widespread shift in design during the 1940s and 1950s. It was a revolution of form, an exciting visual language that signaled a new age and a fresh start – and two of its prime movers were Charles and Ray Eames. The Eameses were a husband-and-wife team whose unique synergy led to a whole ...

beautiful, functional and comfortable though pricey
I am very happy with this chair. The design is elegant and the height adjustment feature is easy to use (though I would love something with a bit more height range). It is well built and seems like it will be long lasting. Is it worth the cost? Not so sure about that. There are other equally beautiful and comfortable chairs out there that I suspect are as well made and sturdy as this one but lower in cost. I did not want to spend an eternity comparison shopping and I was pretty confident I would be happy with this one, so this was a splurge. Even at the DWR "sale" price, this was a lot for a sensible, attractive chair. I thought the Eames philosophy was partly based on good design for the masses (like the name of DWR implies), and this price makes somewhat of a mockery of that. But if the cost is not an issue for others, I can say that I am otherwise happy with this purchase.

how do I raise the seat and what is the full height the seat will twist up to?
Kathy M on Nov 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kathy,

To raise the seat height on the Eames Aluminum Group Management Chair, lift the lever up while taking your weight off the chair. To lower, lift lever up while seated. The full height of the chair when raised to the highest point is, 34.5".
If the drawer bottom is at 25" off floor will this chair be able to tuck under the desk?
Jennifer M on Nov 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jennifer,

At the lowest point the Eames Aluminum Group Chair is approximately 26 inches tall from the floor to the top of the arms. We would recommend taking a look at our other office chair offerings as many of them have a much shorter arm height.
