Think Warm Thoughts Today

Stay warm out there and have a great day!

About the Photo:
Eames Aluminum Group Outdoor
Designed by Charles and Ray Eames, 1958


In 1953, industrialist J. Irwin Miller commissioned a remarkable modernist triumvirate to create his home in Columbus, Indiana: Eero Saarinen designed the building, Alexander Girard masterminded the interiors, and Dan Kiley handled the landscape architecture. Girard, noting a dearth of viable outdoor furnishings, turned to his friends Charles and Ray Eames in 1957. Within a year, the Aluminum Group was in production at Herman Miller.

To ensure that these timeless designs can confidently withstand the elements, the Eames Aluminum Group Outdoor now utilizes new Outdoor Weave fabric—a nod to the spirit of the material used on the original 1958 offering.
