Additional Information


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 manual 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 adjust seat height, turn the collar on base while holding chair arm. 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 is manually adjustable.
  • 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 ...

Care and Assembly

View Instructions
Care & Maintenance With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here. The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary. Polished Aluminum For normal cleaning, apply a pre-softened paste wax to polished aluminum components following the manufacturer's instructions. In humid atmospheres near salt water, apply the wax once a month. In other areas, apply wax every three months to maintain the appearance of the aluminum. Coated Metal For normal cleaning, wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the manufacturer's instructions. Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen. For assistance in determining the appropriate color and gloss for Herman Miller touch-up paint, contact your Herman Miller Customer Service Representative. Fabric For normal cleaning, vacuum upholstery fabric using an upholstery attachment. If further cleaning is needed, dry-clean or spot clean fabric with solvent cleaner. Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric. Do not apply water or any liquid solution. Wetting the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage. Vinyl Upholstery For normal cleaning, wash vinyl upholstery with a soft cloth or soft-bristled brush lathered with mild, nonabrasive soap and lukewarm water. Before the surface dries, wipe with a clean, dry cloth to remove any residue. This procedure may be repeated to remove stubborn dirt or stains. Ink spots can sometimes be removed by washing with soap and water followed by isopropyl alcohol. Do not use any cleaning method that is not listed above, as other methods may attack the vinyl and cause eventual degradation. Leather For normal cleaning, vacuum or dust frequently with a clean, dry cloth. If leather is soiled, it can be wiped with a damp soft cloth and a lather of any mild soap and a minimum amount of lukewarm water. Do not spot clean leather; clean the entire surface. Wipe clean with a damp cloth and dry with a clean, soft cloth. For spots and spills, wipe excess liquid immediately with a clean cloth or sponge; let the leather air dry. If the spot is still visible, further cleaning may be necessary. Sponge the entire surface—seat, back, or chair arm—with clean, lukewarm water. Let the leather air dry; never use a hair dryer or other heat source to dry leather. For stubborn spots and stains, apply a mild, nonabrasive soap solution with a clean, wet sponge. Rinse well and let air dry. For butter, oil, or grease, wipe the leather with a clean, dry cloth and let the remainder of the oil dissipate into the leather. Do not apply water or try to wash a grease spot. Do not use saddle soap, cleaning solvents, oils, furniture polishes, varnishes, abrasive cleaners, detergents, or ammonia on leather; they will ruin the finish, causing it to become sticky and cracked.

Beyond Perfection
I had to wait about a month longer than expected, but it was still with it. I love how my chair turned out. Very sleek design, perfect for my new home office. Also very comfortable.

Absolute classic, will be in our family for lifetimes.
Love the chair, we were happy to add to our collection. High quality all around, I only wish that it could go just slightly higher than it does. Otherwise this would have 5 stars from me.

Great chair
Extremely comfortable. This is a beautiful chair, but it's the comfort that does it. I sit at my desk all day. Excellent support. This is a great chair.

Beautiful chair, very comfortable, very solid
I've only had this chair for two weeks. But it appears well designed, very comfortable to sit in, and very solid in construction. You get the sense of the solid construction with the smooth, quiet way it glides across the floor. It also looks great as my home office is also in my main room.

It also shipped in a very big box. A very nice box. It seems a shame to recycle it. But I haven't figured out what to use it for. Maybe a backyard studio.

I love this chair
I love the classic design. I've wanted one of these chairs for years and am pleased to finally own one. It looks great in my home office and is very comfortable

back saver
A must if you have back pain or sciatica.
Or if you simply sit for long periods at a time.

Beautiful, ergonomic and useful chair.
I use this as a desk chair, and it is very comfortable. The way that it leans back is nice, and the rough fabric adds a nice catch. If I have guests over or need to pull a chair over for something, this is my number 1. Even when it's not in use, it's still in action, by brightening up my home and my life.
