Design Within Reach Eames Aluminum Management Chair
Design Within Reach Eames Aluminum Management Chair

The Eames® Aluminum Group Collection (1958) began as a special project for Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard, who needed seating for a home they were designing for industrialist J. Irwin Miller in Columbus, Indiana. The request was for leisure chairs light enough to move from indoors to out and strong enough to withstand the elements. At the time, the Eameses were exploring ways to use aluminum, which had been strengthened, refined and made more affordable since WWII. They constructed a lightweight die-cast frame for the project, then wrapped it in a sling – a sitting pocket that subtly conforms to the bodys shape. The result was a completely new type of seat and a departure from the idea of a chair as solid shell. While the original concept was for outdoor seating, the Eameses quickly recognized its possibilities for indoor use. This collection has been in continuous production by Herman Miller since 1958. Constructed of 61% recycled materials, its also 88% recyclable at the end of its useful life. Backed by a 12-year manufacturers warranty. This is an authentic Eames chair by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. The configuration of this chair is a registered trademark. Features: Manual seat-height adjustment; tilt-swivel mechanism; tilt lock feature; carpet casters with chrome hoods (all-black chair has black hoods). To order casters for hardwood floors, visit a DWR Studio or call 1.800.944.2233. Materials: Five-star polished or black powder-coated die-cast aluminum base and frame with tubular steel column; Maharam Messenger fabric (78% post-industrial recycled polyester, 15% polyester, 7% nylon), Cygnus mesh (69% elastomeric, 31% polyester) or Spinneybeck® Vicenza leather upholstery.

Design Within Reach Saarinen Executive Side Chair with Casters
Design Within Reach Saarinen Executive Side Chair with Casters

The design of Eero Saarinen's Executive Side Chair with Casters (1957) began more than a decade earlier, when he and Charles Eames submitted several designs to the Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition at MoMA. The pair, who'd been friends and collaborators since meeting at Cranbrook Academy of Art, won first prize. These fluid, sculptural shapes influenced the future work of both men – for Saarinen, most notably in his WombTM, TulipTM and Executive Chairs. The Executive was originally made of fiberglass but was later updated in polyurethane. The feel of this classic seat, however, remains unchanged, with a molded shell that flexes slightly with the sitter and a contoured plywood seat. Unlike Saarinen's furniture, which was consistently sculptural in form, these fluid lines didn't appear in his architecture until the 1950s. When looking at the dome-shaped glass wall of the Kresge Auditorium at MIT, it's not a big leap to see the same shape in the back of Saarinen's Executive Chair. This chair is Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certified® for its use of low-emitting products. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Backed by a five-year manufacturers warranty. Made in U.S.A. The Executive Side Chair with Casters is supported by a five-point, pneumatic height-adjustable swiveling base with twin-wheel casters for use on carpet. Materials: Molded reinforced polyurethane shell; contoured plywood seat; steel legbase; seamless tubular steel legs with polished chrome finish; plastic casters. FABRIC: Knoll Classic Bouclé, 52% wool, 48% nylon. LEATHER: Spinneybeck® Volo full-grain, semi-aniline-dyed leather. Measurements:H 31"–36.25" W 22.5" D 24" Seat H 14.5"–19.75"

Design Within Reach Eames Executive Chair
Design Within Reach Eames Executive Chair

Also known as the Time-Life Chair, this iconic piece was originally created for the executive floors of New York Citys Time-Life Building. How those lucky executives were able to get an Eames chair designed just for them began with Time-Life Chairman Henry Luce. In 1959, Charles Eames asked Luce for photographs from the Time-Life archive to be used in a slideshow he was creating for the U.S. pavilion at the Moscow World Exhibition. Luce agreed, as long as Eames promised to return the favor one day. The following year, Eames made good on that promise, and 50 years later, the world is still enjoying the results of that arrangement. The generously sized Eames Executive Chair (1960) tilts, swivels and has a height-adjustable seat with thick, plush cushions. Backed by a 12-year manufacturer's warranty. This is the authentic Eames Executive Chair by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Five-star polished or black powder-coated die-cast aluminum base and frame with tubular steel column; Maharam Messenger fabric (78% post-industrial recycled polyester, 15% polyester, 7% nylon), Spinneybeck® Vicenza leather or MCL all-grain leather upholstery.

The manual for the Setu Chair (2009) is pretty straightforward: Sit down. This multipurpose chair defines flexibility, moving as the user moves, with a clean aesthetic that suits nearly any home or office space.

Its seat and back are made with LyrisTM elastomer, an innovative material that distributes your weight evenly by stretching in every direction.

Design Within Reach Sayl Task Chair
Design Within Reach Sayl Task Chair

I knew that creating a work chair is one of designs greatest challenges, an intimidating project in every possible way, says Swiss designer Yves Béhar. There is no place to hide in a chair. Every part serves a structural or tactile purpose. Béhar didnt have to look far from his adopted home of San Francisco for the inspiration of his Sayl Task Chair (2010). The geometry of the Golden Gate Bridge suspension system can be seen in the airiness of the chairs signature back. Its name reflects the sailboats that pass beneath the famous bridge, and replacing the i in sail with a y is a nod to the chairs innovative Y-TowerTM structure, which provides ample support. The ventilated elastomer back flexes with your body and permits free air circulation, and the four-setting tilt limiter lets you adjust tension and range to your liking. Low-cost but high-concept, Sayl took almost three years to create and is Cradle to Cradle Silver CertifiedTM for sustainability. Although 90% recyclable, this task chair is no mere throwaway: It includes a 12-year manufacturer's warranty and is shipped as two pieces in a box thats half the chairs size for minimal transportation impact. To assemble, simply lock the seat into the base – no tools required. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Steel frame; elastomer back; foam seat cushion; 100%-recycled polyester seat fabric. Measurements:H 34.25"-38.75" W 24.5" D 24.5"

Design Within Reach Hudson Task Chair
Design Within Reach Hudson Task Chair

Originally designed for the Hudson Hotel in New York City, the Hudson Collection (2000) is Philippe Starcks update of the 1006 Navy® Chair, designed by Emeco in 1944. Hudson is made using the same 77-step process that Emeco perfected 70 years ago to satisfy the militarys need for lightweight, corrosion-resistant chairs for submarines. The companys proprietary metal processing method yields aluminum three times stronger than steel – and a chair so durable that it has an estimated life span of 150 years. Working with Emeco has allowed me to use a recycled material and transform it into something that never needs to be discarded – a tireless and unbreakable chair to enjoy for a lifetime, says Starck. It is a chair you never own, you just use it for a while until it is the next persons turn. The seat of the Hudson Task Chair swivels and tilts, and the pneumatic lift provides instant height adjustment. Hudson is included in the design collection at MoMA and received the 2000 Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum. Hudson chairs and stools come with a lifetime guarantee. This is the authentic Hudson Chair by Emeco. Made in U.S.A. Made from 80% recycled aluminum (40% post-consumer, 40% post-industrial), which requires only 5% of the energy needed to produce virgin aluminum. Hudson is a patented design by Philippe Starck for Emeco. It is illegal for another company to clone this chair. At DWR, the Emeco products we sell are 100% authentic. Materials: Anodized brushed or polished aluminum; swivel/tilt tension mechanism; pneumatic height adjustment; caster wheels. Measurements:H 32.5"–35" W 24" D 24" Seat H 17.5"–20"

Design Within Reach Freedom Task Chair with Headrest
Design Within Reach Freedom Task Chair with Headrest

Niels Diffrients Freedom Chair (1999) was a breakthrough in ergonomic task seating. With a height-adjustable headrest, the headrest version offers customized support for the head, allowing for proper eye-level positioning when working long hours at a computer station. The Freedom Chair is designed to fit almost all body types. The seat depth is adjustable to properly support the seat and thighs, while the adjustable back support helps keep the lumbar region of the body in line. Often, ergonomic chairs are likely to be improperly positioned, resulting in the creation of more problems than they solve. The Freedom Chair is simpler than other chairs, eliminating many manual adjustments and creating instead a system of internal mechanisms that respond to the users needs. A unique counterbalancing tilt mechanism self-adjusts according to the users weight and movement, thus eliminating the need for manual fixes. In addition, the chair and seatback can be easily raised or lowered, and the seat itself moves forward or back. Any adjustments can be easily made while the user is seated for accurate positioning. Because of a natural lift-and-release action, the armrests are effortlessly repositioned in tandem, depending on the task at hand. The seat cushion provides excellent shock absorption and weight distribution for unmatched comfort. Backed by a 15-year manufacturers warranty. Made in U.S.A. For big shots who leave small footprints, Freedom is 62% recycled, 90% recyclable and 100% comfortable. Materials: Die-cast aluminum frame with fused plastic coating; polyurethane foam cushion; vellum fabric upholstery (a blend of nylon, Cordura® and elastic yarn, this four-way stretch textile offers durability and a pleasing texture); 2.5" hard double-wheel casters for carpeted floors only.
