Product Description

Eames® Aluminum Management Chair

The well-known Management Chair designed by Charles and Ray Eames, whose work is represented in the Museum's collection, is produced in the USA by the original manufacturer, Herman Miller®. A classic design of style and comfort, the Management Chair was originally developed for a private residence designed by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard. The lightweight frame is wrapped in luxurious black leather that subtly conforms to the contours of the body. The wide seat is height adjustable with a pneumatic lift, and the chair tilts and swivels for comfort. The chair's column is made of tubular steel with a polished die-cast five-star aluminum base.

About the Designers

Charles Eames & Ray Eames

Husband-and-wife design team Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames were among the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Their landmark contributions include furniture, architecture, film, and graphics. They were pioneers in the molding of plywood, which was developed from their experiments and projects for the U.S. Navy. Their association with the Museum goes back to 1940, with a joint entry with Eero Saarinen in the MoMA competition "Organic Design in Home Furnishings." Since then nearly 100 examples of their work have entered the Museum's design collection.
