Black Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Eames EA318 Office Chair Castor bases
A duo of vintage iconic chairs by Eames for Herman Miller. These black leather EA318 Eames Office Chairs on adjustable castor bases make the perfect desk chairs. Perfect for any office environment, these particular chairs are the ‘Management’ edition due to having the adjustable castor base; which still works very well.
The earliest style of the Eames aluminium range began life as both an indoor and outdoor chair. It was soon realized, however, that the design of these chairs make them perfect for the office workspace due to their being comfortable, practical and stylish chairs.
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 one does display a minor cut in the back of the seat section which is accounted for in the price.
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 these chairs were produced in 1981 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.
