Eames Aluminum Group Lounge Chair Outdoor
It’s a trick only Charles and Ray Eames could pull off: Chairs designed in 1958 as outdoor seating still look classic and contemporary in 21st century interiors.
The chair's clean, curvilinear lines enhance any décor and work well in your home office, dining area, and living room. Available in fabric, vinyl, or leather, these Eames chairs are equipped with an innovative suspension that creates a firm, flexible “sitting pocket.” It conforms subtly to your body’s shape and maintains your comfort.
With an aluminum frame and base, the chair is strong, yet lightweight and easy to move. Earth-friendly, too: made of 61 percent recycled materials and 88 percent recyclable at the end of its useful life.
Aluminum Group chairs began as a challenge among legendary designers. Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard were designing the Columbus, Indiana, home of industrialist J. Irwin Miller. They wanted a high-quality seating product for outdoor use and asked Charles and Ray Eames to develop one.
The classic Eames Aluminum Group Lounge Chair is newly updated with durable finish options and state-of-the-art Outdoor Weave fabric, so you can now have this icon of modern design for your deck, pool area, or outdoor room. Outdoor Weave blends the spirit of the material used on the original 1958 chairs by building on the yarn and weaving technology pioneered with the Aeron Chair's Pellicle suspension fabric. Unlike many outdoor fabrics, it contains no PVC and will hold its shape and color over time.
With one-piece, curved aluminum side ribs and a die-cast aluminum four-star swivel base, the chair is strong yet lightweight and easy to move (thanks to the upper cross member that doubles as a handle).
