InformationThe chairs in the Aluminium Group from Vitra are the most famous creations by Charles & Ray Eames. Designed in 1958 they rate amongst the great achievements in the design history of the 20th century. An important characteristic of the Aluminium Group Chair is the intelligent combination of materials. It has a clear, transparent form and its construction is clearly visible. Aluminium sections lend the chair both stability and lightness. The material is fixed into the side sections, yet fitted loosely so that it follows the line of the body and is comfortable without requiring extensive upholstery. This material is not a cover but an integral part of the design.
There are three variations here, all of which have been designed and are suitable for use as a conference chair.
EA105 - No arms or swivel feature
EA107 - Has armrests but no swivel feature.
EA108- Has armrests and a swivel feature.
All options come with either a chromed or polished aluminium base and are available with leather, Hopsak or Netweave upholstery, in a variety of colours.
Leather : sturdy calf hide with pronounced grain
Hopsak : 100% polyamide fabric
Netweave : 72% plastic, 28% polyester mesh
As with Aluminium Group Chairs the EA105, EA107 and EA108 come with a thirty year Vitra guarantee.
