1st Generation Herman Miller Aluminum Group Lounge Arm Chair Designed in 1957 by Charles and Ray Eames, released in 1958 and produced only until 1973 (later generations continued). This sophisticated icon of American Modern design is worthy of inclusion in a serious and fine collection of Mid Century Modern furniture.

Model 682 lounge chair with smooth 360 degree swiveling and are ready to be placed; perfect in a living room, office, study or anywhere suited to conversation and/or cocktails (our preferred use). We believe that this early model in particular is one of the purest forms of all the Aluminum Group seating.

One of the key differences of this early lounge chairs is the more desirable, rarer (and sexier) base, compared to the later and more common base design which is still in production today.

Another feature of this is the optional black enameled arms! Extremely rare also.

This chair are in exceptional original condition. All the aluminum components retain the original nice polished appearance with only minimal wear marks showing. The original Naugahyde (high quality vinyl fabric) in ‘olive green dark’ (a wonderful shade of green from the period) is in absolutely spectacular condition with no tears or stains and barely any signs of wear. The black enameled arms retain their glossy paint with only a couple of small inconspicuous outer edge paint nicks. Of course the chair has the Herman Miller logo cast into their aluminum bases. This vegan friendly chair has been very well preserved for over 50 years.
