Eames Aluminum Group Management Chair by Herman Miller, Leather Upholstery

designed by Charles & Ray Eames

At A Glance: The Eames Aluminum Group Management Chair is one of the most important contributions Charles and Ray Eames made to modern design. The sleek look of the chair, its minimalism and classic lines, all combined to create an iconic look and a breathtaking profile. Surely amongst the most renowned of the mid-century design pieces.

What's To Like: This is a beautiful piece of modern art...for you to sit in. How often do you get an opportunity to just cold sit on a world-renowned work of art? But it's not just beautiful. This chair is also adjustable and suited to working long hours at a desk. Comfortable and adaptable to lots of different situations and office styles, this is a chair for all seasons. In the boardroom, behind a desk, and under your butt, it always looks and works great.

What's Not to Like: Sitting on a masterpiece isn't cheap. Even though this is a classic case of getting what you pay for, you do have to make a bit of an investment in a chair like this. Also, if you're the type of person who demands a lot of padding, this chair might not be for you.

The Bottom Line: This is an all time classic. And while the price is a bit higher than your average office chair, this work of art is worth every penny. Comfortable, gorgeous, and famous.

Leather Options

Standard Leather
Chromium free and in stock at Herman Miller, standard leather is a winner for most. Direct from Austria with a matte, soft feel, this is the most popular leather used on Herman Miller upholstered items. It has a faint embossed grain pattern and little shine.

Open Line Leather
This Austrian leather is essentially the same as the standard leather, but is available in a wider array of colors. It also has a light embossed grain and is matte in finish.

Dream Cow Leather
A gentle European full grain aniline-dyed cowhide with a calfskin feel, this leather is soft and comes in many great colors to accent your decor. Dream cow is very popular, it has a natural grain and medium shine and is similar to Royal Hide without the price.

Metallic Dream Cow Leather
Metallic is right. This leather is infused with metals and soft shine, on cowhide for huge versatility. Features offbeat, moody colors with a shimmer to them.

All Grain Leather
European full grain aniline-dyed cowhide, All Grain is the easy choice for high-traffic areas with its thicker, more durable finish. It has a high shine with a very thick, grainy feel.

Royal Hide Leather
This versatile leather is the most beautiful of its kind. Offers a huge color range. It will develop a rich patina over time, making it a great heirloom and eliminating the need for reupholstery. Medium grain and medium shine.

The Herman Miller Management Chair is also known by the following manufacturer Item Numbers: EA335P, EA335, EA334.


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.

Lightweight aluminum frame with suspended upholstery. 5-star base with tilt-swivel mechanism and standard manual seat height adjustment or optional pneumatic seat height adjustment with tilt lock.

The Eames Aluminum Group Management Chair is the shortest of the Aluminum Collection, with the back of the chair being shorter than the seat. This does three things for the chair. One, it makes it more stylish, more modern, and bit cooler in that retro sense discussed earlier. Two, it makes the chair less imposing, and therefore open to more activities than simply work and leisure. This is a side chair with wheels and taste, a chair that can fit any room and any purpose without seeming ostentatious. Three, it acts as a kind of Eames signature; this same kind of big seat little seat back ratio is seen in the LCW, the "design of the century," and Charles and Ray loved to be inventive and playful with their designs. Inverting the proportions of the traditional fine furniture chair certainly fits into that category.

Another thing that separates the chair from the other two, the main and most obvious thing, is that it's not designed for a specific task. The title of the chair refers less to office life and more to the management of all facets. If you need a desk chair for your home or work office, this chair will look great, be comfortable, and serve that purpose well. If you need chairs for your kitchen or dining room that fit a modern or retro design scheme, then these are the chairs for you. If you need simple side chairs, chair to go in boardrooms and conference rooms, this is the right choice. If you want a chair that can easily ferry between covered patios and screened in porches, and from thence to indoor localities, then look no further. This is the most basic chair in the Eames Aluminum Group Chair collection, and it's that way for a reason. Charles and Ray believed in a kind of design democracy, where fine furnishings could be made and sold cheaply (or more cheaply than they had been in the past) and were style, grace and beauty could make their way into the average American home. Making products that could wear a lot of hats is a natural fit for this kind of philosophy.

The Eames Aluminum Group Management Chair is a flexible, attractive, classic home and office solution that looks and feels great. You won't find so fine a chair anywhere with such a pedigree, such a flexible nature, and such a uniquely cool look.
