Eames Soft Pad Management Chair

Timeless Elegance

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 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, this management chair is strong yet lightweight and easy to move. Earth-friendly, too: made of 67 percent recycled materials and 90 percent recyclable at the end of its useful life.

  • Expanded Options

    Expanded Options

    We've added a number of new options to let you create the exact chair you want. You can choose leather or fabric upholstery. If you choose leather, you can opt for our standard leather or our new premium leather, a semi-aniline, dyed leather with 100 percent natural full grain. Color variations and surface marks are an inherent characteristic of this material, which will acquire wrinkles and creases and develop a rich patina over time. The new premium leather option is available in black and pearl.

    To complement the lighter materials—including white leather—we are also offering powder coat finishes on the base and frame in white and graphite satin, along with polished aluminum.

  • Innovative Comfort Suspension

    Innovative Comfort Suspension

    Charles and Ray Eames were always concerned about the comfort of their furniture. On the Aluminum Group chairs, they stretched a continuous piece of seat-back upholstery tautly between the aluminum side ribs to make a flexible pocket that provides support as you sit. The Management chair has two upholstered foam cushions on the back and one on the seat.

  • Handy Adjustments

    Chairs have a 5-star base with tilt-swivel mechanism, manual or optional pneumatic seat-height adjustment, and tilt lock feature.

Answers

Answer: 
You can distinguish an authentic Eames Soft Pad Management Chair by looking for a fabric tag to be sewn into the cushion under the seat area if your chair was built in 2008 or later. It contains a Herman Miller logo, Eames Office logo and the Eames' signatures. Attached is an image of the tag.

If your chair was built prior to 2008, you should find a Herman Miller sticker in either black or silver under the seat cushion area.

My 1960's chair has heavy transparent plastic coating on arms that is chipping off at corners from years of being hit on desks. Can this be restored by sending arms to someone?

Answers

Answer: 
Herman Miller introduced the Eames Aluminum Group Soft Pad Management chair in 1958 with a 4-star base. In 1985, we launched the 5-star base on this model and continued to offer both the 4-star and 5-star base option until March 1, 1993. At that time, we discontinued the 4-star base version and only offered the 5-star base. The 5-star base is what we offer on this model today.

Eames Soft Pad Management Chair 5 5 2 2
Timeless design, practical, most importantly, comfortable always It could be just another chair in leather and handles by the untrained eye. But even a blind person could tell the difference when one actually puts ones bottom over the Eames Chair. November 20, 2013
Classy and durable. I purchased my Eames black leather soft pad chair 35 years ago right out of undergraduate design school and have been sitting in it 4 to 8 hours every day since then. I can't think of another item that I have enjoyed and used so much that has lasted so long. February 24, 2013
