The new Dark Chrome line brings a sophisticated and contemporary aesthetic to the classic Aluminium Group.
Dark Chrome brings this appeal – and an even more contemporary aesthetic – to one of the long-loved furniture groups: With Dark Chrome, a new version of the classic Aluminium Chair is born. The Aluminium Chair is one of the greatest furniture designs of the 20th Century. Originally designed in the mid-1950s for a private residence, it stands out with its intelligent combination of materials and innovative construction, combined with impeccable taste. For the Aluminium Chair, Charles and Ray Eames decided against the conventional principles of using a single shell for the seat, instead stretching a cover – textile or leather – between two aluminium profiles, thus transforming the seat into a load-bearing part of the structure. This seat structure adapts to fit the body snugly and delivers great comfort, despite having minimal upholstery.
Some of the chairs in the Aluminium Group, are now available in dark chrome aluminium. The seat cover is made of premium black leather, as are the newly upholstered armrests. Produced with great care and workmanship, these new features highlight the well-known and sophisticated silhouette of the iconic classic. In addition to the various Aluminium Chairs and Soft Pad Chairs, the Eames Segmented Tables are now also available in Dark Chrome. Together, they form a selective range of products for showcase offices and conference rooms.
