Having the best office chair is, probably, one of the biggest concerns for anybody that works for long periods of time. You must have a good office chair. Disregard this and with the amount of time we usually spend sitting on a chair, you’ll have back pains and posture-related issues in no time. Even if you work from home, just because you have the ability to spend some time on your favorite couch while working doesn’t mean you should.
The most famous of the Eames Aluminum Group Office Chairs, the Eames Ribbed Management Chair, the Eames Soft Pad Management Chair, and the Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair started all as household range items to be used as indoors as outdoors. It wasn’t until many years later when these office chairs would be adapted to be used in office settings like we use today. All of these chairs can be found in our store.
While all these Eames Desk Chairs are all part of the Eames Aluminum Group, a collection of office furniture designed by Charles and Ray Eames and released in 1958. The most iconic item from the collection is the Eames Ribbed Management Chair, an office chair featuring a mesh suspension back originally for outdoor use and later adapted for the office environment. Our high-end reproductions of the Eames Ribbed Management Chair features padded leather upholstery on an aluminum frame.
The Eames Office Chairs
You are probably more than well-acquainted with the work of Charles and Ray Eames already. The husband-and-wife duo is behind some of the 20th century’s most defining mid-century modern design moments. They were also responsible for some of the most iconic office furniture in the world: the Eames Office Chairs.
The Eames Softpad Executive Chair
The last addition to the Eames Aluminum Office Chair Group, the Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair is the tall, cushy cousin of the Eames Aluminum Group. Originally designed in 1969 by Charles and Ray Eames, the Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair was designed to be a top of the range executive option with full tilting and height adjustment as standard. This office chair, unlike the others, was always intended for the workplace.
Ever since its 1969 release, the Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair has been in continuous production and is as popular today as the day it was made. The Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair has also been the source of great inspiration for office chair designs over the years.
Our Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair features a high back with thick cushions padded with high-density memory foam and upholstered with top-grain Italian leather. This beautiful combination rests upon a high-polished thick aluminum alloy frame, arms, and a 5-star base for greater stability, with tilt-swivel mechanism and seat-height adjustment. This new tilt lock allows the seat angle to be secured in a neutral position.
Eames Softpad Management Chair
The second addition to the Eames Aluminum Group of Office Chairs is the Eames Soft Pad Management Chair. Originally designed in 1969 by Charles and Ray Eames, the Eames Soft Pad Management chairs were designed to be luxurious and comfortable alternatives to the traditional office chairs of the time.
The first models of the Eames Softpad Management Chair available contrasted the already popular ribbed chairs the dynamic these presented was unparalleled. Ideal to work from home, meetings, the modern workplace, the Eames Soft Pad Management Chair still a popular go-to option in terms of office chairs.
History goes that the Eames Soft Pad Management Chair was apparently produced as an accident. The Eames Soft Pad Chair was inspired by an old aluminum chair with a prototype of the cushion for the Eames Chaise thrown over it. The result became one of the most recognizable office chair designs of the 20th century and still inspires office chair designers to this day.
Our Eames Soft Pad Management Chair features a durable yet comfortable leatherette seat which is easy to clean. This office chair is built on a reliable 5-star base and a supportive chrome steel tube frame. Back and seat are upholstered with leatherette and finished with two upholstered high-density foam cushions.

The Eames Ribbed Management Chair
The first office chair of the Eames Aluminum Group is the Eames Ribbed Management Chair. Originally released in 1958, this office chair with a low-back has shown a great amount of versatility throughout the years. Originally designed as an indoor and outdoor dining chair, the Eames Ribbed Management Chair as well as the rest of the Eames Aluminum Group, has reinvented itself as an emblematic office chair.
Over the years, the Eames Ribbed Management Chair has seen several variations. This office chair was first released with four options: A chair without arms and with fixed and swivel pedestal bases, and another one with arms with fixed and swivel bases choices. A final variation with a high back was simultaneously released.
