Vastu’s Herman Miller Favorites – The Eames Aluminum Group Chairs
Today’s Herman Miller Favorite is brought to you by Vastu designer, Ray Nguyen.
His pick is the Eames Aluminum Group chairs. What started out as a design challenge, the Aluminum Group chairs represented a departure from the concept of the chair as a solid shell when Charles and Ray Eames designed the chair with a cast aluminum frame that was meant to support a stretched synthetic mesh. Today, the chair can be upholstered with many choices of fabrics.
Here’s what Ray had to say:
“Sleek, sophisticated, comfortable, instantly recognizable and absolutely timeless. This iconic group of chairs by Charles and Ray Eames is utilized in commercial and residential applications all over the world. The broad range of upholstery materials and trim levels allows the chair to be customized to each interior. Gorgeous, supple leathers in several grades, technical, easy care meshes and contract quality fabrics are all available. This chair says “I am smart. I am successful. I am stylish.” And it does it for less than ten sessions with your shrink. Not bad for a chair designed in 1958.”
