HERMAN MILLER SWIVEL CHAIR MODEL 682 BY EAMES

HERMAN MILLER SWIVEL CHAIR MODEL 682 BY EAMES

Great early model 682 high back arm chair designed by Eames for Herman Miller as part of their Aluminum Group series of seating. This particular model has an early style 4 prong base with swivel-only mechanism resting on original casters intended for further mobility. Upholstered in original black naugahyde. Due to its age and significance as an early of-the-period piece, this is considered a collectors grade item and does retain age related wear and patina mainly some leading corner damage on fabric, bubbling on Saran arms, and rust on the aluminum and wheels which may be restored (no pitting).  Structurally sound, stable, and in working order with mechanism at base and wheels gliding smoothly.

Retains original stamped aluminum Herman Miller label on underside.   

Part of the 'Aluminum Group' released in 1958, the Eames aluminum chair was arguably one of the first to be made in the material and was originally designed to function as both an indoor and outdoor chair. Initially released as models 681 (no arms) and 682 (with arms) the aluminum group lounge chair has seen a degree of changes over the years. The use of Aluminum, a non-corrosive metal, for the frame was combined with a revolutionary new material called ‘Saran’ which was used on the arm wraps.
