Eames Executive Work Chair by Herman Miller
designed by Charles and Ray Eames

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 aluminum frame and base, and finely detailed leather upholstery accented with covered buttons and edge details typical of traditional fine furniture.

Adjustable seat height, tilt-swivel mechanism, and a five-star base add to the comfort. Available with casters or glides, the chairs can work well in a conference room, board room, conversation area, or behind a desk.

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames

Charles and Ray EamesCharles and Ray Eames
Charles and Ray Eames are perhaps the most celebrated designers of the 20th century. Married in 1941, the Eames duo are responsible for some of the most critically acclaimed furniture designs of the modern era. Amongst their most famous designs are the molded plywood chair, the aluminum chair group, and the Eames Executive Chair. Although they are most often remembered today for their furniture designs with partner Herman Miller, the Eameses engaged in artistic expression across a broad range of mediums- including architecture and filmmaking.


About the Design

In 1959, George Nelson was asked by the U.S. government to design the American pavilion at the National Exhibition in Moscow, the first cultural exchange program between the U.S.and U.S.S.R. since the Russian Revolution. The pavilion would showcase American manufactured products. Nelson asked the Eameses to produce a film, to be shown in the pavilion, that would depict a day in the life of the U.S. Charles Eames called his friend Henry Luce, the chair of Time-Life, to ask that he be allowed to use images from Time-Life’s vast archive. Luce agreed, but told Eames he would have to return the favor one day. The Eames film was called “Glimpses of the USA,” the first multiscreen slide show and a huge success. A year after the Moscow exhibition, Luce called to ask the Eames design team to design a chair for his new building. The Eameses responded with the Time-Life chair, which we have been producing since 1960.


In 1972, the executive chair made the news when notoriously fussy chess genius Bobby Fischer included this chair among his many demands for his legendary 1972 world championship match with Russian master Boris Spassky. When Spassky got a look at the chair, he demanded one for himself, and a second chair had to be shipped pronto to Iceland, where the match was being held.
