Design by Charles & Ray Eames, 1969.
Made in the U.S.A. by Herman Miller.
This plush padded furniture group was introduced by Herman Miller in 1968 as a luxurious, yet durable counterpart to the Eames Aluminum group. The high-back Soft Pad Executive chair features a continuous piece of seat-back upholstery stretched tautly between aluminum side ribs, creating a firm and flexible sitting pocket that subtly conforms to the body's shape.
2" thick foam upholstered cushions add a plush touch to this line's durable aluminum base. With one-piece, curved aluminum side ribs and a polished aluminum 5-star base with casters and tilt-swivel mechanism, the chair is strong, yet lightweight and easy to move. Available in 12 unique fabric and leather upholstery options in a range of beautiful colors and textures.
In Summer 2009, the Soft Pad Executive Chair got a lift with pneumatic height adjustment and tilt lock options. The pneumatic feature (optional) increases the ease of height adjustment and range of motion to suit a broader range of seating applications and body types, and adds an additional 2" to the chair's height. Tilt lock allows the seat angle to be secured in a neutral position. Herman Miller has painstakingly preserved this classic silhouette and updated its usability for modern applications.
Select Manual or Pneumatic Seat-Height Adjustment and desired caster option. Then select base/frame finish and upholstery textile color.
Chair is tested and warranted for use by persons 300 pounds and under.
Includes Free Threshold Delivery service
Material(s): Aluminum and foam with Slideshow fabric (100% polyester)
Great service, okay chair
By: Anon62453, Renter (Berkeley, CA)
Liza with yLiving is great. The chair is just okay. It's not noticeably better or worse than the other office chairs that I sue (the Embody). The ergonomic features, tilt lock and tilt tension are not as well-integrated as they are on an Embody or an Aeron. But, that is the trade off with this chair. More padding in the seat cushion and back and better looks versus better ergonomic support.
Designer: Charles + Ray Eames
A chair that looked like a potato chip. Another that resembled a "well-used first baseman's mitt." A folding screen that rippled...
With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."
That look and their relationship with Herman Miller started with molded plywood chairs in the late 1940s and includes the world-renowned Eames lounge chair, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.View other products by Charles + Ray Eames
