Synopsis: ‘A major design by Charles Eames for the Herman Miller furniture collection combines cast Aluminum with other modern materials in ingenious, purposeful lines’ is the written message on the back of this four-page brochure. It is no accident that the written introduction to this advertised launch of new products is on the rear, as they simply let the visual artistry of the design do ‘the talking’. Released for the 1958 launch of the ‘Indoor Outdoor Group’ the group of designs that would eventually shed its name and become known as the Aluminum Group, morphing into one of the most classic and iconic office chair designs of all time. The brochure inside showcases photograph images of the range, alongside technical illustrations with dimensions and profiles. The front cover uses a clever analogy at the top of a bird, both in a cage and outside, signifying the indoor, outdoor theme.
