"Who would say that pleasure is not useful?" -Charles Eames

In 1951, Charles and Ray Eames met the challenge of making a reasonably priced, quality chair that was light yet strong. Their solution - the Eames wire chair. It featured a sculpted look, comfort, and practicality which made It an immediate hit. Today's versions remain true to the original design, materials, and detailing.

They made the rim of the chair a lighter-gauge wire and doubled it for stability to achieve strength requirements, an organic shape, and cost restraints. This advance won them the first American mechanical patent for design.

The airy silhouette of the wire chair's organic shape fits the contours of the body making the wire chair a perfect choice for residences and workplaces alike.

Wire shells are offered with a wire shell with upholstered seat only. Wire shells are available in trivalent chrome, or powder-coated white or black. The Eames Task chair is an extension of the existing Eames Shell Chair Family, offering select shell and upholstery combinations on a five-star base. Upholstery with textiles or leather for indoor use only. The Eames Task chair features a five star base with casters (wheels). Pneumatic height adjustment up to five inches. Ships assembled. Also available with full seat upholstery (please call to specify this version).

Eames

The primary need of the human being was an essential component of every design for Eames. They believed a design to be successful when it catered to how people are similar to one another instead of addressing idiosyncrasies, benefitting the greatest number of people.
Herman Miller is synonymous with “modern” furniture. Creative director George Nelson recruited contemporaries Charles & Ray Eames, Alexander Girard and Noguchi to create a legendary furniture collection.
