Designer

eames-charles-ray.jpg

A chair that looked like a potato chip. Another that resembled a "well-used first baseman's mitt." A folding screen that rippled . . .

With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."

That look and their relationship with Herman Miller started with molded plywood chairs in the late 1940s and includes the world-renowned Eames lounge chair, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Charles and Ray achieved their monumental success by approaching each project the same way: Does it interest and intrigue us? Can we make it better? Will we have "serious fun" doing it?

They loved their work, which was a combination of art and science, design and architecture, process and product, style and function. "The details are not details," said Charles. "They make the product."

A problem-solver who encouraged experimentation among his staff, Charles once said his dream was "to have people working on useless projects. These have the germ of new concepts."

Their own concepts evolved over time, not overnight. As Charles noted about the development of the Molded Plywood Chairs, "Yes, it was a flash of inspiration," he said, "a kind of 30-year flash."

With these two, one thing always seemed to lead to another. Their revolutionary work in molded plywood led to their breakthrough work in molded fiberglass seating. A magazine contest led to their highly innovative "Case Study" house. Their love of photography led to film making, including a huge seven-screen presentation at the Moscow World's Fair in 1959, in a dome designed by their friend and colleague, Buckminster Fuller.

Graphic design led to showroom design, toy collecting to toy inventing. And a wooden plank contraption, rigged up by their friend, director Billy Wilder for taking naps, led to their acclaimed chaise design.

A design critic once said that this extraordinary couple "just wanted to make the world a better place." That they did. They also made it a lot more interesting.

 

Care & Maintenance

With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.

The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary.

Stone Tabletops

Natural characteristics in stone result in variations in hues, veins, crystals, and distinctive marks. These variations—as well as the subtle changes that occur as the stone ages—are typical of natural materials. Over time, the stone may fade in color, the surface may stain, and surface cracks—if not already visible at time of purchase—may appear. Small cracks do not affect the structural integrity of the tabletop.

Stone tabletops are susceptible to staining. Exposure to insect repellents and suntan lotions and sprays may cause discoloration. Spills of acid-based liquids—such as coffee, wine, and fruit juice—should be wiped up immediately with a clean, soft cloth to avoid staining.

For routine maintenance, rinse the tabletop with warm water to remove surface dirt and wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth. For normal cleaning, wash the surface with a mixture of a mild detergent and warm water and rinse immediately with warm water. Wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth. Do not use abrasive or acid-, alcohol-, or solvent-based cleaners. They will damage the surface.

Herman Miller outdoor stone tabletops are treated with a sealer that penetrates deep into the porous surface. These tops require occasional resealing. To determine whether it’s time to reseal your tabletop, pour a small amount of water onto it. If the water beads, resealing is not necessary. If beading does not occur, apply a natural stone sealer, available at hardware and home improvement stores, to provide continued protection. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use.

Table Bases
Coated Metal

For normal cleaning, wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in a mild detergent and warm water, then rinse thoroughly and dry immediately. Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with presoftened paste wax, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Use automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste, to remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings. After polishing, apply a presoftened automotive paste wax to restore the original sheen.

Storing

Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight will cause your stone tabletop to fade. Placing the table away from direct sun or covering it appropriately when it is not in use will help avoid fading. If you choose to cover your table, be sure to remove the cover when the weather is warm or humid to reduce the chance of mold and mildew growth.

Herman Miller also recommends bringing the furniture indoors for storage if the temperature stays below 40 degrees Fahrenheit (5 degrees Celsius) for an extended period.
