Eames Wire Chair by Herman Miller
designed by Charles and Ray Eames


Eames Wire Chair At A Glance:
First introduced in 1951, the Eames Wire Chair was an immediate hit. Distinctively, unmistakably Eames, this chrome metal chair has stood the test of time and is as popular today as it was half a century ago. The airy silhouette of this seat is made of cross-woven wires and positioned on a bent-wire, welded "Eiffel Tower" base. The Wire Chair adds artistic interest - and functional seating - to residences and workplaces alike.

What's To Like:
For style, the Wire Chair gets an "A" - it's got a beautifully exposed structure. Cross-woven wires and a bent-wire welded base make the Eames wire chair strong and lightweight, and the optional leather seat pad gives you more comfort for your posterior.

What's Not to Like:
The leather pad goes a long way towards making the Wire Chair a comfortable seat, but it still won't be a comfortable long-term (read: 1 hour) seat. You'll get a sore bum if you stay put for long.

The Bottom Line:
A prime example of the Eameses use of welded wire, the Wire Chair is small, light, and has a beautifully crafted Eiffel Tower base for added character. All that remains is for your to choose whether or not you want a seat pad, and what color you'd like.

Details:

  • Overall: 32.75" h x 19" w x 21.25" d
  • Seat height: 16.5"
  • Chrome frame with optional leather seat pad
  • Elegantly crafted Eiffel Tower base
  • Standard glides can be ordered with felt bottoms to protect bare floors; both styles tilt slightly to help with leveling


Leather Options:

  • Stock Leather
    Chromium free and from Austria this stock Herman Miller leather is a winner for most. With a matte, soft feel this is the most popular leather used on Herman Miller upholstered items.
  • Open Line Leather
    Austrian by birth, yours by choice. Open Line leather is closest to the stock Herman Miller leathers but available in a wider array of colors.
