Soft Pad Management Chair (1990s)
Made by Herman Miller
Listed for sale is a Herman Miller Eames aluminum group soft pad management desk chair in black leather. Multiple chairs are available, though the listing price is for each individual chair. These examples were produced circa late 1990s and came from a notable law office in Manhattan, which was designed by SOM Architects (Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill). The architecture firm also specified use of these chairs. As shown in the photos, this version has the standard tilt/swivel base with casters. Most of the chairs have silver-hooded casters, whereas a few have black casters (shown) or the skinnier black casters. We'll aim to make sure that if a group is purchased, we'll match them all.
Condition overall is very good to excellent with normal wear from use. As shown, they've formed a beautiful patina to the leather, which we love to see. There is some wear to the corners, which we can touch-up and address with some leather conditioner. See photos. The arms are in excellent condition without notable scuffs or damage. A couple of these chairs look a bit more worn than the other as far as patina goes (arguably in a desirable way depending on your preference). If you'd prefer a more worn look, let us know.
The chair's height is 34 inches at the tallest point, 23 inches wide, 23 inches deep, and with a seat height of 19-22.5 inches. As noted, the price listed is for one chair. Multiple chairs are available.
