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.
As we mentioned before. we’re going to give each of these chairs a closer look, and there’s no place to start than the most popular one: the Eames Ribbed Management Chair.
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.
The Eames Ribbed Management Chair features heat embossed ribbing just like the original chair, which is three times more durable than cheaper stitched ribbed versions and has a superior airflow. This high-end office chair is built upon a 5-star extra strength aluminum base and a supportive chrome steel frame. Back and seat feature a ribbed leatherette upholstery and removable aluminum arms. Additional features include tilt, swivel, and height-adjustable control as well as polyurethane rolling casters, perfect for hardwood floors and low pile carpet.
