    Product Overview

    Eames Aluminum Group Management Chair

    Charles and Ray Eames first began designing their Aluminum Group suite in 1958 as a special project for Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard. The Aluminum Group Management Chair was originally designed to go outdoors — but with its sweeping clean lines and classic construction, it's now more suited to indoor workspaces. The Management Chair's features include:

    • Innovative comfort suspension.
    • Customizable upholstery.
    • Easy-to-use adjustments.

    The simple aesthetic of the Aluminum Group gives the family of chairs versatility. Fill your corporate conference rooms with the Management Chairs, or use them around a modern dining room table for an iconic 1950s look. The options are endless.

    Design Story

      Design Story

      A major technical achievement
      Aluminum Group chairs began as a challenge among legendary designers. Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard were designing the Columbus, Indiana, home of industrialist J. Irwin Miller. They wanted a high-quality seating product for outdoor use and asked Charles and Ray Eames to develop one.

      Known for their honest use of materials, the Eameses constructed their chairs with cast aluminum and a seat frame meant to support a stretched synthetic mesh. The seat-back suspension was a major technical achievement and represented a departure from the concept of the chair as a solid shell.

      Those chairs became the Aluminum Group, which Herman Miller began manufacturing in 1958. And while they have been in continuous demand, the line has changed and grown over the years. The original mesh meant for outdoor use was discontinued, along with the 4-star base and painted arms on the early designs.

      In 2001, we introduced a new mesh material for the Aluminum Group. Called Cygnus, it is similar to the Aeron Chair’s Pellicle fabric in its aeration and translucent qualities. The lounge and side chair models are again available in the 4-star base, a look that is particularly appropriate for the home.

    Care & Maintenance

      Care and Maintenance

      With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.

      The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary.

      Polished Aluminum
      For normal cleaning, apply a pre-softened paste wax to polished aluminum components following the manufacturer's instructions. In humid atmospheres near salt water, apply the wax once a month. In other areas, apply wax every three months to maintain the appearance of the aluminum.

      Coated Metal
      For normal cleaning, wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the manufacturer's instructions. Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen. For assistance in determining the appropriate color and gloss for Herman Miller touch-up paint, contact your Herman Miller Customer Service Representative.

      Fabric
      For normal cleaning, vacuum upholstery fabric using an upholstery attachment. If further cleaning is needed, dry-clean or spot clean fabric with solvent cleaner.

      Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric.

      Do not apply water or any liquid solution. Wetting the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage.

      Vinyl Upholstery
      For normal cleaning, wash vinyl upholstery with a soft cloth or soft-bristled brush lathered with mild, nonabrasive soap and lukewarm water. Before the surface dries, wipe with a clean, dry cloth to remove any residue. This procedure may be repeated to remove stubborn dirt or stains.

      Ink spots can sometimes be removed by washing with soap and water followed by isopropyl alcohol.

      Do not use any cleaning method that is not listed above, as other methods may attack the vinyl and cause eventual degradation.

      Leather
      For normal cleaning, vacuum or dust frequently with a clean, dry cloth. If leather is soiled, it can be wiped with a damp soft cloth and a lather of any mild soap and a minimum amount of lukewarm water. Do not spot clean leather; clean the entire surface. Wipe clean with a damp cloth and dry with a clean, soft cloth.

      For spots and spills, wipe excess liquid immediately with a clean cloth or sponge; let the leather air dry. If the spot is still visible, further cleaning may be necessary. Sponge the entire surface—seat, back, or chair arm—with clean, lukewarm water. Let the leather air dry; never use a hair dryer or other heat source to dry leather.

      For stubborn spots and stains, apply a mild, nonabrasive soap solution with a clean, wet sponge. Rinse well and let air dry. For butter, oil, or grease, wipe the leather with a clean, dry cloth and let the remainder of the oil dissipate into the leather. Do not apply water or try to wash a grease spot.

      Do not use saddle soap, cleaning solvents, oils, furniture polishes, varnishes, abrasive cleaners, detergents, or ammonia on leather; they will ruin the finish, causing it to become sticky and cracked.
