Eames Aluminum Group Executive Chair by Herman Miller, Leather Upholstery

designed by Charles and Ray Eames


Eames Aluminum Executive Chair At A Glance:
Herman Miller introduced the Eames Aluminum Group in 1958 as Charles and Ray Eames' response to the need for high-quality indoor-outdoor furniture. It soon moved inside exclusively. Herman Miller celebrates the chair that came in from the cold. Available in management, executive and side chair models, this design remains a classic of style and comfort.

This high-back executive chair utilizes a lightweight aluminum frame with suspended upholstery, 5-star base with casters, tilt-swivel mechanism and seat-height adjustment. The leather options provide luxuriously comfortable seating.

This is the kind of chair that belongs in the corner office or behind the biggest desk; the kind of chair that demands respect, while at the same time never being ostentatious or pretentious. It's simple, it's sleek and cool and retro, and it's designed to build a subtle picture of prestige. It also happens to be beautiful. Of course, this is also a flexible chair, and it doesn't have to be used behind a desk. While that is where it was designed to go, there are other places that will work, including lobbies and public spaces, and even homes. The high back of the chair makes it perfect for the desk, but that shouldn't be a limiting feature.

Also available in a more affordable fabric version. See the entire Eames Aluminum Chair Group.

What's To Like:
The Eames Aluminum Group Executive Chair is a true tall-backed chair. The elegant combination of leather and aluminum ribbing rises to the top of most sitters' backs. The effect is not imposing or intimidating, but it is certainly more prestigious. It retains the mystique of the old versions of executive chairs but replaces their pretentious exteriors with the simple, lovely creations of Charles and Ray Eames. And while this is a classic example of classic modern furniture, it's not dated. If anything, the cachet of the chair has only grown in the years between its debut and today, because the ultra-cool, retro look has come into style now even more than it was at that time.

Another feature of the chair is the more sculpted back. That's just one more reason this is a great chair for the office. It will keep your back comfortable and give you a little more support. That's going to really come in handy for long days at the office, when you need to do sustained work at your desk for hours and hours at a time. When you don't have to get up all the time because you're uncomfortable, that's a ton of productivity you're not losing because of your chair. With the Eames Aluminum Group Executive Chair, you don't run that risk. This is a comfortable, stylish chair.

What's Not to Like:
You'll get tilt, swivel, and rolling casters, but you won't get adjustable or padded arms. You'll get beautiful style and a huge selection of leather options, but you won't get adjustable lumbar support. By retro, we mean retro; when style was evolving and technology hadn't quite caught up yet, the Eames Aluminum Executive Chair was king. So really, it's all about the trade-offs. If you're looking for style, this is your cup of tea. Fully adjustable comfort? Try the Embody Chair or the Aeron Chair.

The Bottom Line:
This chair is an example of perfect design. When Charles and Ray Eames made a piece of furniture, they were often trying to make something multipurpose like the LCW or the molded plastic chairs, or else something "perfect" for a certain task, like the Eames Lounge Chair and the Eames Aluminum Group Executive Chair. These were chairs that used innovative techniques and materials to create something perfectly tailored to a need. In the case of the Lounger that need was rest and relaxation, and in the case of the executive chair, the need is a fine, prestigious, and powerful looking office chair. This is a chair that looks the best in the office, but looks good in the home and in public areas as well. High style, aesthetic beauty, functionality; it's a classic design from Charles and Ray Eames.


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.

Dream Cow Leather
With a gentle calfskin grain (it's not calfskin though, its European full grain aniline dyed cowhide), this leather is soft and comes in many great colors to accent your decor. This is a leather of great versatility, perfect when Royal Hide is out of budget, but where the look is wanted.

Metallic Dream Cow Leather
A gentle calfskin grain (again, not calfskin but European full grain aniline dyed cowhide), infused with metals and soft shine, on cowhide for huge versatility. Updated, offbeat, moody colors.

All Grain Leather
Not too big - not too small - just "All Grain". Color and quality together wedding grain and color, always with a feeling of luxury. European full grain aniline dyed cowhide powered by Crypton, "All Grain" becomes an easy choice for high traffic areas and commercial offices.

Royal Hide Leather
This versatile leather is the most beautiful of its kind. The color range is huge, reflecting its broad applicability. It will develop a rich patina over time, making it a great heirloom, eliminating the need for reupholstery. A European full grain aniline dyed cowhide leather with no limits - sky, earth, sea.

Caster Option:

  • 2" chrome soft double wheel casters, hard floor or carpet

Seat Height Adjustment Options:

  • Manual seat height adjustment
  • Pneumatic seat height adjustment with tilt lock

Comments about Herman Miller Eames Aluminum Executive Chair:

This chair is perfect in every way. Well worth the wait. Been stalking this thing for years and finally pulled the trigger on it. I went for the manual seat adjust and it's great!! Leather is soft too--durable enough and not too soft that it will show wear.

    Comments about Herman Miller Eames Aluminum Executive Chair:

    The Eames high-back executive chair is in my home office. It is SO comfortable and timeless. I love the tilt function, I tilt back and look out the window for visual breaks. While I'm a fan of leather, I chose a woven fabric (violet moire) because in the summer I work in shorts and didn't want my legs sticking to leather. I'm very pleased with the fabric, it has a great mix of color and looks high quality. Having owned it for only one month, I don't know how the fabric will wear, although it looks industrial and durable and I don't feel concerned. Granted the lift function is likely adjusted only occasionally, but still I went with the pneumatic lift option because I like the ease of how these work. I love it.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Comments about Herman Miller Eames Aluminum Executive Chair:

    First Impressions
    The Executive Chair is meant for the corner office. It has a high back, and the polished aluminum and the black leather can make a powerful impression. It fits in well with most types of desks and most office design schemes as well; it's not the kind of chair you have to build your whole office around. There is extra curvature in the back of this chair (because there is extra space) and that makes you a bit more comfortable while you're going through long days at work. Sitting in this chair was much like sitting in any other modern work chair, just with less adjustments and more style.

        A:

        No, only the low back version called the Management Chair can be ordered without arms. When you order it without arms it cannot be ordered with casters nor can it raise and lower in height. It would be 20.5" wide though.

        A:

        The reupholstery can only be done at the factory as you need a hydraulic press to execute this task. You will find it comparable in price to purchase a new chair unfortunately.
