To equip the chairs and ottoman for outdoor use, we developed a new fabric that would be durable enough to weather the elements whilst still feeling good against your skin. Outdoor Weave retains the spirit of the original 1958 polyester plastic film and builds on the technical capabilities of the Aeron chair’s Pellicle suspension material. Outdoor Weave combines a sturdy mono-filament polypropylene for strength and elasticity, with four multi-filament polypropylene yarns to give it a great look and feel. It’s also recyclable and contains no harmful PVC. It is available in several tones selected to complement the choice of powder-coated frames.
The assembly of the Eames Aluminium Group Outdoor is as crucial an element of its design as how it feels to sit in. The Eameses not only designed each element of the chairs and ottoman, but also the process by which they are crafted. Herman Miller do it the same way today as it was done in 1958.
A continuous piece of Outdoor Weave is fed between the aluminium ribs, which are then turned inside out and attached to the cross members. Because of this process, the chair offers considerable comfort and support without any of the bulk or weight of a traditional upholstered chair. The fabric itself becomes the seat, with a firm, flexible “sitting pocket” that conforms subtly to the body’s shape.
