Black Herman Miller Original Eames EA337 High Back Office Chair Castor base
The original Eames Herman Miller EA337 high back ‘ribbed’ office chair is the iconic office or home desk chair and this example is in a great vintage condition! The perfect set up for any working environment, it brings the stylish design of the original ‘ribbed’ chair with the added comfort of the higher back support.
The Eames office chair has been the most popular office chair since it was introduced in 1958 and with the steady introduction of ‘new’ variants as the series saw more and more popularity. The ribbed version was introduced alongside the mesh version and the high back variant was introduced in 1966.
The leather on these chairs is in an aged, used, condition, there are signs of use on the edges and on the arms which give it an aged character.
The metal does show signs of its age and may benefit from a good polish, but this is only visual and does not affect the structural integrity of the chair.
The label on the underside indicates this chair was produced from 1999 by Herman Miller.
The Eames Herman Miller Aluminium group have always been popular pieces for both collectors and for the average user. As an investment piece, as with many things, the older the better but as well used and good used pieces, these may be a little aged, but they should still prove to be reasonable investment pieces.
