Herman Miller Eames® Soft Pad Management Chair
Charles and Ray Eames, 1969
This management chair from the Eames Soft Pad line—an extension of the Aluminum Group by Charles and Ray Eames—offers the same sculptural shape as its predecessor but with the luxury of cushioned comfort. It features an adjustable 5-star base along with new finishes and premium materials, making it a standout in workspaces, conference areas, and home offices.
Herman Miller began making the Aluminum Group chairs in 1958. In 1969, the Eameses extended the original design by adding plush, individually upholstered cushions. They named these the Soft Pad chairs. The chairs’ simple lines, innovative use of materials, and suspension comfort have kept them among the most popular seating choices for both offices and homes for more than 50 years.
