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. Measurements:H 35.5"–37" W 26.5" D 29.5" Seat H 18.5"–20"

Charles and Ray Eames had ideas about making a better world, one in which things were designed to fulfill the practical needs of ordinary people and bring greater pleasure to our lives.

Irwin Miller. With the addition of plush seat cushions, the Soft Pad Collection retains the style of the earlier one but adds significant comfort. We have to take pleasure seriously, said Charles Eames. No matter what the Eameses did, they did it with passion and imagination, and in the process, they changed lives. This is an authentic Eames Soft Pad Chair by Herman Miller. Backed by a 12-year manufacturer's warranty. Made in U.S.A. Constructed of 67% recycled materials and 90% recyclable.

Design Within Reach Eames Aluminum Group Executive Chair with Pneumatic Lift Design Within Reach Eames Aluminum Group Executive Chair with Pneumatic Lift

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: Pneumatic 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.

Niels Diffrients Freedom Chair (1999) was a breakthrough in ergonomic task seating.

Any adjustments can be easily made while the user is seated for accurate positioning. The seat cushion provides excellent shock absorption and weight distribution for unmatched comfort. The Freedom Chair was awarded the 2002 National Design Award from the Smithsonians Cooper-Hewitt Museum. Backed by a 15-year manufacturers warranty. Made in U.S.A.

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"

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.

The breakthrough Kinemat tilt mechanism lets it move smoothly with the user from forward tilt (when you reach for the phone) to backward recline (while you contemplate what to say). And the Pellicle weave upholstery, another innovation in concept and comfort, evenly distributes weight over the seat and back, and permits air circulation. Durable and sleek, this chair will still look like new long after you retire. Design doesnt get more civilized. This is the authentic Aeron Chair produced by Herman Miller. Constructed of 66% recycled materials. Backed by a 12-year manufacturer's warranty. Made in U.S.A. PostureFit® is recommended for users who like to sit up straight, working with the bodys biomechanics to support the natural forward tilt of the pelvis, which promotes healthier posture and improved back comfort. Lumbar Support is recommended for users who like to recline or rock, adjusting to fit the natural curve of your mid and lower back, with a sliding support that can be flipped over to change seat depth. Features tilt limiter with tension control, seat angle adjustment, adjustable arms, standard arm pads and carpet casters. Materials: Pellicle® weave upholstery; Kinemat® tilt mechanism; adjustable back with PostureFit® hardware or lumbar support; die-cast aluminum frame and base; foam arm pads.

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"
