VINTAGE EAMES HERMAN MILLER BROWN LEATHER SOFT PAD GROUP CHAIR #2968b. Beautiful vintage dark brown leather Soft Pad Aluminium Group chair designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller in the 1960s. In very good vintage condition.
There is some age-related wear to the leather but nothing serious or specific to mention, there is some edge wear rubbing to the leather on the corners. The arms are in good condition with some light wear on them. The chair rotates 360 degrees.
A well-built, extremely comfortable chair. Some background on this model from Herman Miller. Charles and Ray Eames developed the Eames Soft Pad chair in 1969 as a luxury version of their Eames Aluminum Group chairs.
Introduced in 1958, the Aluminum Group was a special project by Charles and Ray Eames for a private residence being designed by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard for Cummins Engines founder J. Irwin Miller in Columbus, Indiana. At the time, the furniture was called the "leisure group, " or "indoor-outdoor group" since it was meant to address the lack of quality outdoor furniture on the market.
Herman Miller began making the Aluminum Group chairs in 1958, and they have been in continuous demand ever since. As Herman Miller say, this comfortable and luxurious chair sits equally well in retro interiors, elegant lobbies, or hip young offices.... A statement of enduring design excellence. At time of listing we have three of these chairs in dark brown leather in case you're interested in more than one (please message).
