Originally developed as an outdoor chair for the Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard-designed home of industrialist J. Irwin Miller, the Eames Aluminium Group offers maximum comfort with a minimalist profile.
Newly updated and featuring a range of highly durable finish options including Outdoor Weave fabric, the Aluminium Group Lounge Chair, Side Chair and Ottoman are once again ready to go back to where it all started – outdoors.
Today the chairs and ottoman have been re-engineered for outdoor use with durable materials and finish options.
Materials consultant Susan Lyons developed a new fabric, Outdoor Weave, that synthesises the look and feel of the original plastic film by building on the yarn and weaving technology pioneered with the Pellicle fabric on the Aeron chair.
Unlike many outdoor fabrics, Outdoor Weave contains no PVC and will hold its shape and colour over time. White and graphite satin outdoor powder-coat frames, and a return to a 4-star base, complete the update.
