Whilst Charles and Ray Eames may not have initially set out to design with the workplace in mind, we are certainly glad they adapted to it, as an Eames workplace is certainly one filled with visually appealing style and super durable comfort as standard.

We largely have Herman Miller to thank for the significant shift of emphasis toward the workplace and commercial market during the late 1960’s and 1970’s that defined whole series of Eames designs as perfectly suited. Even the 1957 Aluminum group was originally intended as an indoor and outdoor home series of lounge chairs but later adapted into perhaps the most recognizable office chair series of all time! Much was owed to the functionality of the design and the sheer versatility of the chairs and tables in order to cater for a super wide range of potential commercial environments.
The Alu group was refined into a series of low and high back executive chairs as well as those for reclining and lounging, ideal for the lobby or reception. A range of Soft Padded office chairs were also added to the portfolio a decade later and they were complimented with the Time Life Chair, something considered to be for the executive due to its alluring beauty and rich quality leather and finish.
The fantastic range of available seating and finishes would need to be complimented by matching tables too and these certainly did not disappoint. From small side tables with castors to 20-foot conference tables, everything and every task had been considered. The segmented table range was the pinnacle of greatness when it came to workplace table design. It was devised using an ingenious system of interlocking parts that meant they could have virtually unlimited customization into all manner of shapes and sizes.
Even the highly successful Eames fiberglass chairs were morphed into functional workplace options too. From draftsman stools to secretary chairs, the adaption of the range certainly added another decade or two to the life span of an already super popular product.
