The Quintessential Classic

Since their introduction in 1958, the Eames Aluminium Group range by Herman Miller has been an enduringly popular design that has reached iconic status.

The graceful silhouette sits equally well in all kinds of interior or outdoor spaces with its distinctive form.

With a wide range of material options the Eames Aluminium Group range allows a personalised look that provides a statement of enduring design excellence wherever they are placed.

Challenge Legend

Eames Aluminium Group chairs began as a challenge among some legendary designers.

Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard were designing the Indiana home of industrialist J. Irwin Miller and they asked Charles and Ray Eames to develop a high-quality seating product for outdoor use.

Known for their honest use of materials, the Eames' designed the construction of the new chairs with cast aluminium and a seat frame that would support a stretched synthetic mesh.

The seat-back suspension was a major technical achievement and represented a departure from the concept of the chair as a solid shell.

Those chairs became the Eames Aluminium Group which Herman Miller has been manufacturing for over 60 years.

"Recognising the need is the primary condition for design" - Charles and Ray Eames

Innovative Comfort

Never being favouring style over substance, Charles and Ray Eames gave their designs an innovative suspension that creates a firm, flexible “sitting pocket” that conforms subtly to the body’s shape.

The suspension was created by stretching a continuous piece of seat-back upholstery tautly between lightweight aluminium side ribs.
