Eames Aluminium Chair by Herman Miller
Originally developed as an outdoor chair for the Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard-designed home of industrialist J. Irwin Miller, the Eames Aluminum Group offers maximum comfort with a minimal profile. Newly updated versions of the lounge chair, side chair, and ottoman with a range of highly durable finish options including Outdoor Weave fabric, the Aluminum Group Lounge Chair, Side Chair, and Ottoman are once again ready to go back to their roots—outdoors.
To ready the chairs and ottoman for outdoor use, we developed a new fabric that would be durable enough to weather the elements and still feel good against the skin. Designed by materials consultant Susan Lyons, Outdoor Weave retains the spirit of the original 1958 polyester saran and builds off the technical capabilities of the Aeron chair's Pellicle suspension fabric. It is available in four tones selected to complement the white and graphite satin powder-coated frames.
A continuous piece of Outdoor Weave is fed between the aluminum ribs which are then turned inside out and attached to the cross members. Because of this process, the chair offers considerable comfort and support without any of the bulk or weight of a traditional upholstered chair. The fabric itself becomes the seat, with a firm, flexible "sitting pocket" that conforms subtly to the body's shape.
With one-piece, curved aluminum side ribs and a die-cast aluminum base, the chair is strong, yet lightweight and easy to move (thanks to the upper cross member that doubles as a handle).
Available with or without arms, the Eames Aluminum Group Side Chair Outdoor is suitable for any location where a dining-height chair is called for and naturally complements our range of Eames Tables Outdoor.
The Eames Aluminum Group Lounge Chair Outdoor pairs perfectly with the matching Eames Aluminum Group Ottoman, or you can cluster multiple chairs around a low table for an informal sitting area.
