Manager soft pad chair 551, Alu Group by Charles and Ray Eames 1969
The Manager Chair 551 belongs to the new group of aluminum chairs, which are equipped with the Soft Pad, and can be found in sophisticated conference and office rooms. The Manager chair 551 was designed by Bauhaus designers Charles and Ray Eames in the late 1960s and introduced in 1969. The hitherto known undercarriage was equipped with soft, but flat upholstery. The upholstery is made of high quality leather or linen and offers a very high level of comfort. The manager chair is rotatable and with armrests. The frame is a four-star chromed cast aluminum, with felt pads on the feet.
Charles and Ray Eames began developing the so-called Aluminum Group in 1955. As a guideline, it was necessary to develop a chair that is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
Thus, after three years of work, the first prototypes of the "Leisure Group" were created. Only in 1969 did the variants with additional padded bags (soft pad). Each chair in this aluminum group can be individually adjusted. Because the user sits on it all day in the office, it is especially important for the body and the health to have a selection of different settings.
The chairs of the Aluminum Group are probably the best-known office chairs in the world. In many conference rooms, they have become indispensable.
