This ultra cool desk, or conference chair is an early example of the Eames soft pad range. One of the most comfortable chairs ever made. We love the way the brushed aluminium frame has dulled over the years. Along with the vintage black leather it gives the chair a sophisticated, almost industrial look. Ofcourse the aluminium can also be polished for a shiny look. The leather is strong and very well maintained. The cushions are still soft and can be refilled with new foam if desired. The chair swivels on a four leg universal base. The Herman Miller logo and the patent number are stamped into the aluminium , a practice that ended in the 1970's. This is an original vintage chair in great condition with a beautiful patina.
