Originally known also as Time-Life chairs - The Eames Executive Work Chairs were created, along with the Eames Walnut stools, for the three ultramodern lobbies of the Time-Life Building in 1960 for Henry Luce, Chairman of Time-Life .
This luxurious chair is an example of Charles Eames's belief that "details are not details; they make the product." Generously sized, the executive work chair features a lightweight aluminium frame and base and finely detailed leather or fabric upholstery accented with covered buttons and edge details typical of traditional fine furniture.
If you choose leather, you can opt for Herman Millers contract-grade leather or MCL Leather, a premium, semi-aniline, dyed leather with 100 percent natural full grain.
Colour variations and surface marks are an inherent characteristic of this material, which will acquire wrinkles and creases and develop a rich patina over time.
Comfort comes first. The seat has 4-1/2-inch-thick foam cushions; the back cushions are 3 inches thick. Armrests are well padded and luxurious.
Adding to the comfort are adjustable seat height, tilt-swivel mechanism, and a five-star base features. Available with casters or glides, so the chairs can work well in a conference room, board room, conversation area, or behind a desk.
