Herman Miller Eames Soft Pad Side Chair
Fabric Upholstery
designed by Charles and Ray Eames


At A Glance:
2" thick foam pads, curved aluminum side ribs and arms, a 4-star aluminum base with glides that are safe for both carpet or hardwood floors ... combine all of these elements together, throw in some stylish fabric upholstery, and the result is the Soft Pad Chair Collection by Charles and Ray Eames. The fabric upholstery of this model is comfortable, durable and - perhaps best of all - a more affordable alternative to the traditional leather upholstery options. The fabric upholstery options give you the choice of a brighter, lighter look or a more subdued, traditional piece.

Also available with no arms and with leather upholstery.

Known for their honest use of materials, the Eameses constructed the chairs with cast aluminum and first conceived of a seat frame to support stretched fabric--a synthetic mesh (woven saran). Although the mesh was discontinued shortly after its introduction, Herman Miller reintroduced a new mesh material for the Aluminum Group in 2001. Called Cygnus, it is similar to the Aeron chair's Pellicle fabric in its aeration and translucent qualities.

The seat-back suspension was a major technical achievement and represented a departure from the concept of the chair as a solid shell.

Wonderfully comfortable, the chairs became the basis for several other Eames designs, including the Soft Pad chair group.

The most simple, with the least size and the least bells and whistles, is the side chair. The side chair is the only version of the Eames Soft Pad Chair that doesn't have any arms. It's smallish, so it can fit in lots of different places and even fade into the background of a room if that's what you need from it. But it can also serve as a centerpiece. When the chair has no arms, it actually looks bit more artistic, more sculptural, because there's nothing getting in the way of it's lovely and surprising profile. A big part of designing these chairs was getting the curvy, soft waves of the back of each chair just right.

The side chair can also go into either the home or the office; it's a multipurpose chair that can wear a lot of different hats. It retains the great looks of the other chairs with none of the specificity, and it's a good choice for most tasks. It looks good, it feels good, and it is good.

The design story for the Eames Soft Pad Chairs is long and involved, but the conclusions are satisfying. This is a system which is the product of years of research, tinkering, and adjustment. In the end, it's system of very comfortable and stylish chairs, great design, and customizable beauty for your home and office. Read the entire design story of the Eames Soft Pad Chairs.
