- Product information
The Eames Aluminum Group, originally introduced in 1958 as indoor/outdoor seating, still manages to look both classic and contemporary in 21st century spaces. The clean, trim lines of this design in each of its versions—executive, management, side, and lounge—make it appropriate for all kinds of places, from classic and contemporary homes to elegant oces to hip start-ups.
Aluminium Group, also upholstered in traditional fabric or leather, is ribbed at 1 7/8-inch intervals for a clean, refined appearance. The Cygnus mesh option has a lighter-scaled, translucent quality. Executive and management models come with seat-height and tilt-swivel adjustments; pneumatic lift and tilt lock are available as options.
Eames Aluminum Group represents a major technical achievement by Charles and Ray Eames. They departed from the concept of chair as a solid shell and stretched a continuous piece of upholstery tautly between two aluminum side ribs. The resulting seat-back suspension provides a rm, flexible “sitting pocket” that conforms subtly to the body’s shape. The one-piece curved aluminum side ribs and die-cast aluminum base make for a strong yet lightweight chair.
